Thiers : Michelin's recommendations
Some of the things that draw visitors to Thiers are: the magnificent terraced site, on the sides of the gully where the Durolle flows, a splendid view over Limagne and the Dômes Mountains, and the old areas with beautiful houses. For several centuries, this town has been the greatest cutlery centre in France and you will not fail to talk about this subject in the stores specialised in this field. And if this is not enough, you can discover a surprising centre of Contemporary Art.
