Basilique Notre-Dame-des-Fers : Michelin's recommendations
Built of grey volcanic stone, the basilica features a remarquably homogeneous style. On the outside, note the beautiful East end with four radiating chapels and few decorations. The leaves of the three doors have retained their original wrought-iron work. The interior is, like that of other major churches in Auvergne, practically unadorned. One's eyes are drawn to the double line of pillars leading to the chancel bathed in light. The famous statue of the Virgin in Majesty stands against a column, behind the high altar.
