Le Puy-en-Velay : Michelin's recommendations
Le Puy-en-Velay’s setting is unforgettable. From a fertile plain enormous spikes of volcanic origin rise up, sometimes crowned by a chapel – Saint-Michel-d’Aiguilhe on the top of the Saint-Michel rock is delightful –, sometimes by a monumental statue. The cathédrale Notre-Dame, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is almost oriental in style and houses a black Virgin that is still venerated today. The Saturday market provides an insight into life in the old town.
