The Puy Of Ysson



The "puy d'Ysson" is the ancient lava chimney of a volcano loomed up at the tertiary era, cleared by the erosion of surrounding sedimentary materials. Frm the top of his 937 yards, you will discover an amazing circular panorama on Massif of Sancy, Mounts Dômes, the Cézallier and Mounts of Livradois-Forez. The "puy" soars up above landscapes where alternate plain and volcanic peks constituting the region of Lembron and Couzes, affluent rivers of Allier.
