Vichy and its surroundings...


The spa town of Vichy is now listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site along with ten other major European spa towns. A ranking that rewards a true open-air architecture museum.

The city of Vichy has developed since Antiquity around natural mineral water springs with healing properties, and contributed to the development of European spa culture, from the beginning of the 18th century to the 1930s. It presents_cc781905-5cde -3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_ an urban organization made up of buildings dedicated to thermal treatments with, alongside them, hotels, theatres, villas, casinos, golf courses, parks and gardens.

The chain of Puys, in Auvergne, is also classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site with its approximately 80 perfectly aligned volcanoes over 32 kilometers long and 4 km wide.
