About France

Among them, you can choose to explore the one of archaeology (musée Bargoin), or the one of Fine Arts (musée Roger-Quilliot), or if you are a nature lover, head the Natural History Museum (musée Henri Lecoq).

Amateur of contemporary art, visit the FRAC Auvergne. Stroll around the place de la Jaude and around the historic centre to discover the Elephant house. Dating back to the 13th century, it’s a great example of romanesque architecture.

Do not leave without visiting the UNESCO listed romanesque basilica Notre-Dame du Port.
