The village of MasgotA surprising village dedicated to naïve art

At 50 km from the campsite, the village of Masgot is a remarkable place with some odd granite sculptures and statues made during the 19th century by François Michaud, considered as one of the pioneers of Art Brut in France. The history starts in 1850 when François Michaud, farmer and stone-cutter, starts sculpting hundreds of imaginary animals in different areas of the village and on the house fronts… At the time, his work wasn’t always appreciated and the artist often was not understood. During a stroll around the village of Masgot you’ll be discovering the work and imaginary world of this talented sculptor. During school holidays, sculpting workshops are organised for children and adults.
