Leaving from Via Podiensis, the main road in Europe to Santiago de Compostela, Le Puy-en-Velay is an exceptional site. Protected from the ravages of time, the city has many surprises in store for visitors. Its 35-hectare protected area with the Cathedral and the Hôtel-Dieu (listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site under the Santiago pilgrimage routes) testifies to the richness of its architecture and history. A city of art, an artistic and cultural centre, a place for exchanges and meetings, Le Puy-en-Velay offers many activities all year round (festivals, traditional and historical festivals). The city is also an ideal holiday destination to discover a region whose volcanism has shaped the beauty of its landscapes.
For those who like to discover a region by walking, Le Puy-en-Velay is a real land of coconut. Indeed, there are few places in France that can boast so many long-distance hiking trails in their historic centres.
