From the top of the hill on which stands the statue of the Virgin of Fatima, the walker enjoys a unique panorama: the Dore mountains (Sancy), the Cézallier, the Haute Auvergne (Cantal) and the Limousin.

A statue renovated in 2015

In the early 1960s, a statue of Our Lady of Fatima was placed on the hill overlooking the town of Saint-Donat. Despite regular maintenance, the statue has since deteriorated sharply.

The municipality and the parish of Sainte Bernadette des Dores offered to finance the work, in addition to a subscription launched with the population. The statue shines again on the Puy de la Croix, thanks to the generous donors, the parish and the municipality.


Access is in about ten minutes by a path that runs along the campsite.
