Brioude is a perfect example of everything you would expect from the French countryside. People are kind, everything is calm and there are a lot of bars. If you stay in the center of the town, you can reach everything important very easily in a couple of minutes on foot.
They have some cheese and wine that is specific for the region. These are very tasty and you can buy them relatively cheap in the supermarket as well.
Also don't miss the Cathedral St. Julien, it is in the center of Brioude and it's amazingly beautiful.

You cannot miss this sight, as it protects the entire city from the altitude of 757 meters on the Corneille Rock, of volcanic origin. Put here between 1856 and 1860, the statue of Notre Dame represents the Virgin holding the Child Jesus in her arms. Made of 213 canons of cast iron from the battle of Sebastopol, the statue measures 16 meters high and weights 110 tones. The climb is accessible, with rest points, toilets and an orientation map giving you a very nice panorama on the Cathedral, the city and the whole region.Le Puy Sights– The road to Compostella - Via Podiensis In 950, the archbishop of Puy was the first non Spanish pilgrim...
