Le Puy-en-Velay

Highly recommended
Le Puy-en-Velay makes for an extraordinary sight. The town is hemmed in by hillocks, with the Rocher Saint-Michel-d'Aiguilhe crowned by a Romanesque chapel, its Rocher Corneille, with a monumental Virgin Mary on top, and its no less strange Notre Dame Cathedral, almost Oriental in style and housing a black Virgin that is still venerated today. In September, the locals in costume observe the Bird King Festival, a fascinating tradition dating back to the Renaissance.
