Association which promotes heritage's wealth of Les Combrailles and enhances reputation of "Viaduc des Fade"s (bridge).
Exhibitions, conferences, media operations... Sioule & Patrimoine has set itself the main objective of acting to promote, preserve and enhance the heritage assets of the Sioule Valley.
With this in mind, the association has set itself the following priority missions:
- to raise public awareness of the problem of the non-maintenance of the giant railway viaduct of Les Fades (the highest railway bridge in France), due to the cessation of operation of the Lapeyrouse-Volvic line ;
- to search for possible realistic solutions to find a new vocation for its restoration, which is a prerequisite for its safeguarding.
The association has a large documentary collection on the whole of the Sioule basin. It publishes an annual magazine, "L'Écho de la Vallée", which reports on the actions carried out and includes in-depth articles on local heritage. It organises exhibitions and slide shows (DVD on the history of the Fades viaduct) and offers on-site visits on request.
