Welcome to Pays d'Issoire

At its heart is main town Issoire, home to the Auvergne’s most flamboyantly decorated Romanesque church. Equally dazzling is the Vallée des Saints, a geological marvel of ochre-and-red fairy chimneys. Fortified villages such as Montpeyroux and Usson are worthwhile detours as much for their medieval ramparts as their 360-degree views across rolling hills.
