Clermont-Ferrand is a central French city with approximately 141,000 inhabitants. The city is made famous by a surrounding chain of volcanic mountains called the Chaîne des Puys, of which the tallest peak is Puy-de-Dôme, a dormant 1465-meter high volcano situated only 10 km away from the city. Clermont-Ferrand hosts a wealth of attractions including museums, castles and places of worship. The old town centres feature medieval buildings in a Roman, Gothic and Renaissance architectural style. The Cathedral Notre-Dame-de-l'Assomption was built between the 13th and the 19th century from volcanic rocks and offers a great view from Bayette tower. The city's Roman heritage can be seen at the Place De Jaude market square, which features a statue of Vercingetorix, a Gaul hero who stopped the advancing of Julius Caesar and the Espace Art Roman, a free-entrance museum which exhibits the Romanesque and Medieval heritage of the region.
