"The pearl of the Morvan"... A promising name for this commune located at the southern end of the Morvan Regional Natural Park. Moreover, while the botanist Emile Château was born here, the painter Louis Charlot was not mistaken when he settled in Uchon. Despite its size, the village is rich in original heritage: the fortified castle, in the heart of the village, burnt down in 1364, has become a theatre of greenery, the church built on a boulder, invites you to take a look and discover its Romanesque nave, its flamboyant Gothic choir while the oratory recalls the pilgrimages it hosted during the plague epidemics of the 16th and 17th centuries. But that's not all... The crumbling stone, the devil's claw, arouses the curiosity of walkers... The first one, a granite pebble 8 meters wide and 2.30 meters high, weighing more than 20 tons and located at the edge of the Escrots wood, would have, according to the legend, the property to oscillate from north to south. The second, a three-metre high rock measuring twelve metres in circumference, is mysteriously balanced on a base. Finally, it is difficult to leave Uchon without a visit to the Carnival.
