Meymac (Occitan: Maismac) is a commune in the department of Corrèze, in central France.

History[edit]

During the Hundred Years' War it was pillaged by Rodrigo de Villandrando.

Geography[edit]

The commune lies just south of the Millevaches Plateau and northwest of the Cantal mountains.

The Luzège has its source in the northern part of the commune; it flows south through the middle of the commune and crosses the town.

The Triouzoune forms most of the commune's eastern boundary.
