  • Once mounted the 3 floors and the many steps of the spiral staircase, we reach the top of the tower or a panorama of the surroundings of Issoire is waiting for you. 4 orientation tables are present to identify. Attention however to the people who have Vertigo.

  • We go down a little by chance on the clock tower especially strolling out of the Abbey and through narrow streets. It leads to the market place and inside appears tower that seems to "monitor" the central square.
