  • I do not regret taking the trouble to climb the many stairs giving access to the Cathedral. The Interior is beautiful and the view is impressive.

  • Few parts to visit cloister quite small. Little originality. High price for content. Much more interesting Polignac fortress.

  • If the Museum is open, is accessed directly by access to the Cathedral. And the restaurant with a large terrace which has seen on the statue of the Virgin of the Puy will delight you with the pumpkin soup at the chestnuts of the Ardèche or the tasty slab of sarrazin to the cream of the Puy lentils. A taste absolutely with a verbena ice for dessert.
