The best things to see and do in Le Puy-en-Velay

The historic capital of Le Puy-en-Velay is well-known for its exceptional local products. Its green lentils, verbenas and lace have all been transformed into regional icons. It's also the starting point of the Via Podiensis, the most legendary route of the Camino de Santiago. The city is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and it's easy to see why. In the centre, you'll find the Rocher de la Corneille, with the proud statue of Notre-Dame de France. There are dozens of historic jewels to uncover: the Romanesque Notre-Dame de l'Annonciation cathedral, the hospital pharmacy of the Hotel Dieu, more than 20 remarkable religious buildings and an Italian-style municipal theatre. Everywhere you turn, you'll find beautiful squares adorned with picturesque fountains.

On a camping holiday in Le Puy-en-Velay, you can visit the Crozatier Museum. It has 4 separate galleries, each with its own theme: history, the territory of Velay, fine arts and sciences. When you've finished exploring this remarkable museum complex, take a stroll through the streets and alleys of the old town of Puy. The colourful houses give the city an evocative, provincial atmosphere.

Come summer's evening, and you'll find the city's monuments lit up at night with bright, magical colours that create a tapestry of light: follow the Puy de Lumières route to marvel at this sight. The lights and colours are different each year, so you'll have to come back again! Back at the campsite, the fun continues with stars in your eyes and evening entertainment. Alternatively, enjoy a quiet moment relaxing on the terrace of your mobile home.
