A New Podcast – the Auvergne – Part 2

Words can’t do justice to the beauty of the spring countryside in the Auvergne with its fields of yellow dandelions, meadows, volcanic peaks and herds of cattle blending peacefully under a deep blue sky. In the fall, the autumn colors fill the valleys and mountains.

This central highlands of France is also home to many of the greatest Romanesque churches – the Cathédrale Notre Dame of Le Puy, the Basilique Saint Julien in Brioude, Saint Austremoine in Issoire, Orcival, Saint Nectaire, and so many more. The richness of the Romanesque bounty is something that we can explore every year when we travel to France.
