Restes du château, crocq
Lumière du matin says of the history of this building :

  Don de la famille Cornudet des Chomettes à la commune de Crocq en 1989.

  Vestiges d'un imposant château fort, érigé en 1190 par les comtes d'Auvergne. D'une hauteur d'une vingtaine de mètres, avec des murs de trois mètres d'épaisseur à la base, elles témoignent de l'importance stratégique de Crocq en ces époques troublées.

  Crocq, appartenant à l'Auvergne, mais en limite du Limousin était une place forte du royaume de France, comme en attestent les lettres patentes de Charles VII, en 1426. Un fac-similé est visible à l'écomusée.
