Clermont Ferrand

Clermont Ferrand, the capital of the Auvergne is largely built of black Volvic andesite rock, and the town is dominated by the 1,465 metre peak of the Puy de Dome. Due to water shortages in earlier times, the town has many public fountains, originally constructed to provide the inhabitants with drinking water.

Clermont is a big wheel in the motor industry, having been the birthplace of… Edouard Michelin. Tyres are still manufactured here to this day.
