The village is dominated by an extinct volcano, the Pic de l'Avoiron that reaches a height of 727 meters.

The village keeps some traces of his ancient fortress and his romane church, of which the door has been classified "monument historique".

Other curiosity at about 2 kms of the village : the Vallée des Saints, sometimes nicknamed the Colorado Auvergnat.
The surprising colors of the "Vallée  des Saints" In a valley, you can see vertical clayey columns offering a palette of diversified colors : from pink to violet and from yellow to red.
These strange forms continually sculpted by the erosion look like a monks pilgrimage, from which comes the name of this place. You can also uncover ferruginous water sources.
