Traces of the Knights Templar in Allier, Auvergne, France

On the website http://templiers.org.free.fr/index.php a host of templar sites in France is collected and describes in much detail. Especially for Central France, this website mentions more sites than indicated on the well known alternative website of the Project Beaucéant,
http://www.templiers.org/commanderies.php.

The present map endeavours to close this gap for the Department Allier in the Auvergne Region, using the source http://templiers.org.free.fr/departements/index.php?page=03.

With great respect and acknowledgement we quote below part of the description (in French) and illustrations of the commanderies mentioned on templiers.org.free.fr under the rules of Fair Use.

The round symbols with white background indicate location where a recognizable evidence of Templar presence is still visible. On the square locations all evidence is lacking nowadays, though archives indicate a former presence.
