Yssingeaux - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Haute-Loire

To the south border of Auvergne and Vivarais, Yssingelais is a land of contrasts: the freshness of forests and the air is often tempered by a breath from the south; dialect here sings in Occitan. Leaning against the chain of volcanic saps, the town sprawls from 700 m to 1250 m altitude on a cut between the western Loire gorges and the Gorges du Lignon in the East.

All the flavors of gastronomy : the sausage - the bun of Yssingeaux - the sweetness of juices (small individual cake created in June 2014 in connection with the National School of Pastry which every year students from all over the world).
