You'll be amazed! Open your eyes and your ears - and journey far away during the new Puy de Lumières light show!
Le Puy-en-Velay is the European capital on the Way of St James, with each year numerous pilgrims going up the steps of the Cathedral and setting out on the famous GR65 trail.
Coming to Le Puy-en-Velay means visiting a preserved 35-hectare region. The Cathedral and Town Hall area is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site as part of the Way of St James. Come and enjoy a weekend just an hour and a half away from Lyon and Clermont-Ferrand.
Velay is a land of contrasts with a rich history. It is a region of wide-open spaces and vast horizons, where the human adventure has left behind a large number of modest or magnificent, but always moving landmarks.
The history of Le Puy-en-Velay has also been written in lace... The special workmanship and sound produced by the threads intertwining on the bobbin lace pillow. Puy lace is an ancestral skill that is still in the spirit of the times.
For centuries, Velay has been a land of faith and spirituality. In the 5th century, a sanctuary dedicated to the Virgin Mary was built at the summit of Mont Anis.
We all love this moment! When you load up the car boot ready to work on your tan and you put everything carefully in your beach bag: a towel, suncream, a swimsuit. You turn on the ignition and you're off to the beaches of Velay.
Velay is a land of hiking trails with both steep slopes and mountains to climb. You get your breath back, don't forget your walking staff and we set off to go up in the world. Come on, today we are going to take on a summit!
It's worth pulling on your walking shoes in the Velay region to get a good look at some exceptional landscapes. Velay is an invitation on a journey just a few miles away!
The sun is out, everyone is wearing shorts, the days are getting longer and after the evening barbecue with a glass of rosé at 7 o'clock comes the question... "What about a concert?" OK! Le Puy-en-Velay is a land of festivals with dancing and emotions for thousands of spectators each summer.
