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 should walk by or enter the Hotel Berbisey, which combines stone and wood and the Hotel Bouchu, with a rigorous front and decorated with wall ties at the angles and the windows. It would be a pity not to visit La Maison de Trois Pignons (The House of three Gables) built around 1440 with a very interesting geometry of its front.Dijon – Sights – Museums Here are some of the museums that you might want to discover for their uniqueness and...
