Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption

It took over 500 years, from the 13th century to the 19th century, to build this Cathedral with volcanic stones. Inside you can find unique stained-glass windows and wall paintings, and if you walk up the Bayette tower you will get the best panoramic view of the area.

Do & See

The city's major sights and historical beauties are connected by several walking paths that run through the two ancient town centres of Clermont and Montferrand. The whole area is home to architectural treasures, museums, castles and some of France’s richest Roman heritage. The region where the city lies is a wonderful site for outdoor activities and adventures, providing travellers with some incomparable walking-trails that twist and turn around the imposing Puy De Dôme volcano.
