THIS WAS ONE OF THOSE "WOW!" TOWN'S WHEN WE FIRST CAUGHT GLIMPSE OF IT!
Le Puy en Velay, in the heart of the Massif central.
Surrounded by high hills and the famous conical volcano forms of the region, this Town sits in a very impressive position!
Le Puy is famous for being the start point of one of the main pilgrimage paths in France that lead to Santiago de Compostella, so no wonder the town record's over 700,000 visitor's each year!
We couldn't have been there in the busy season, as it was fairly quiet, only met one tour group on all my walk's.
The main time for the Pilgrimage is from the 25th of March till the 15th of October
