Nestling in a peaceful, green setting in the heart of the Auvergne Volcanic Regional Nature Park between the Dôme and Dore mountains is Notre-Dame d'Orcival basilica, a masterpiece of Romanesque art built most likely at the start of the 12th century by the Counts of Auvergne and the Bishop of Clermont. It boasts a magnificent chevet and, inside, fantastic carved capitals and a striking statue of the Virgin in Majesty that attracts numerous pilgrims on Ascension Thursday. One of the most beautiful churches in the Auvergne!
