    The cloister of the Cathedral of le Puy is the opportunity to visit exotic, quiet and beautiful examples of architecture. This can be a nice step on the path that climbs up to the statue of the Virgin :)

    The cloister is very well preserved, the fresco of the Chapter Hall is also to see. The exhibition of contemporary art in the cloister proves that modern art can very well marry with religious architecture. The treasure with his various works is beautiful...

    Visit the visit to the "high" city, it is located next to the Cathedral. Very well preserved with many capitals to discover all the corner of the Court.
