And its volcanic "orgues"
Perched on volcanic lava columns overlooking the Allier River, Chilhac piques visitors’ interest. A medieval village surrounded by ramparts and built around a Romanesque church, it’s now been designated a Petite Cité de Caractère. A good number of old winemakers’ houses and the Museum of Palaeontology draw visitors’ attention. Below stands a 19th-century suspension bridge spanning the Allier.
