The former sénéchaussée of Auvergne is a town of great judicial significance, elegant, poised and just a little stiff. Numerous vestiges of Riom's splendid past have been preserved within its main boulevards, which follow the line of its ramparts. Its main street is lined with shops and restaurants; the town also has two fine museums, including the Musée Mandet, a real gem.
