  • The high point of a visit to Le Puy is its amazing cathedral, but no visit would be complete without paying the few Euros to climb to the top of the huge statue of Mary for the 360' views around this....  more »
  • It's a very novel sight and after some hesitation we decided we couldn't leave Le Puy without visiting the statue. It's a fun experience to climb to the top and have a vista over the city in the...  more »

  • The Rocher Corneille with the statue of Notre-Dame de France is truly an inescapable site of the Puy-en-Velay not to be missed. Paying access to the rock platform is not easy, but it provides access to a magnificent panoramic view of the entire city and its surroundings. The rock is also topped by the colossal statue of Notre-Dame de France, 22.70 m high. you can go inside and get to the head at the Crown level.

  • It's a must-see when you come to Le Puy-en-Velay. Admission is free (Adult 4 - Under 18s 2 in 2019) but it's worth the cost. After a hundred steps, you will reach the foot of the statue. From here, you'll have a 360-degree view of the city. The cathedral on one side and the rock of St. Michael on the other. It is possible to climb to the head of the statue by means of a spiral staircase cut off from a few landings. Take the opportunity to look at the view through the openings. At the last level you will arrive at a ladder at the end of which you can look over the crown of stars of Our Lady. Don't expect to have your hair in the wind. You will arrive with your head warm in a dome of Plexiglas. The stars will not allow you to see the panorama. Also, being on a ladder, it will be difficult to turn around to see behind you. In the end, you will enjoy the view of the panorama at the foot of the statue.
