The charm of the historic old town

More than 500 churches, more than 50 castles and palaces can be visited along the "Route historique des châteaux" and bear witness to the region's thousand-year-old history. The old historic towns such as Lyon, Grenoble, Clermont-Ferrand or Moulins reflect the high architecture of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.

The isolated plateaus in the middle of the Chaîne de Puys and the Monts Dore are a sanctuary for hikers, pilgrims and horse riders. In winter, the mountains around Aurillac invite you to enjoy relaxing skiing or long snowshoe hikes. The ski resort of Le Lioran and the ski area of Mandailles are considered particularly suitable for children.
