Puy de Dome, Blaise Pascal University and Notre Dame du Port are among the many other attractions here that should be on every visitor's schedule.

Those adventurous souls in search of some fresh air and thrills can test their limits by joining a horse riding or mountain climbing adventure.
One of the joys of being in new places is learning new flavors, tastes and aromas. Don't miss the opportunity to eat at the region's cafés and restaurants. Ingredients commonly found in many Auvergne recipe books are mushrooms and truffles. Tripoux (tripe 'parcels' in savoury sauce) and truffade (sautéed potatoes with garlic and cheese) are some popular local specialties to taste. Don't think a meal is finished without a glass of wine? Try Chardonnay or Gamay, some options to try.
At the end of your adventure in Laveissiere, put the lens cap back on your camera, spend your last of your euros on last-minute souvenirs, and bid Au revoir / À bientôt (farewell) to this unique vacation spot.
