    Out very interesting: Tower Boyar (a game of Nice Riddle, for a period of 30'... and on reservation: slots almost every hour), free temporary exhibition (in August, games), belvedere (with a nice view at 360 ° on Issoire and Sancy)... We enjoyed good right now! All for a cost reduced. Note: easy parking at 100 m, place the grain market, no payment by credit card.

    The climb to the top wins, 142 steps, but the view of Issoire and the area is splendid. The temporary exhibition on games is interesting.

    Big Tower in the center of Issoir with a staircase a little sport to get to the top but what a view on the roofs of Issoir and all the surroundings with of the puys of the massif central. There is often an interesting exhibition.
