What to do in
Clermont Ferrand ?

Located at the foot of Puy de Dôme, one of Auvergne’s most famous volcanoes, the birthplace of Blaise Pascal has two faces. One is Clermont, the oldest and formerly Arvernis, the city of Avernes under Vercingetorix; the other is Montferrand, medieval and claimed by an Auvergne count. From these beginnings, Clermont-Ferrand inherited an incredible legacy which its economic strength - driven by numerous companies, with Michelin at the helm - has allowed it to preserve.

    • Get lost in the beautiful streets of Old Montferrand, stop off at Marcel Sembat and Rodade squares, take in the timber-framed façades of medieval houses and the magnificent doorways of private mansions, walk along the ramparts...
    • Say hello to Vercingetorix, sworn enemy of Julius Caesar. An immense statue of the Avernes king can be found on Place Jaude, reminding you that Gregovie, the site of his victory over the Roman Legion, is just a few kilometres away.
    • Admire the surprising Notre-Dame-de-l’Assomption, the black cathedral. It owes is sombre façade to Volvic stone, the volcanic rock with which it was constructed. Just opposite, on Place de la Victoire, the first crusade was launched by Pope Urban II.
    • Sunbathe on the lawns of Jardin Lecoq, named after its creator: Henri Lecoq. Clermont’s Museum of Natural History also shares the surname of this distinguished 19th century botanist. A must see!
