Knights, falconers, jugglers and farmers in costume put on a great show to delight young and old alike. Next, discover the secrets of how the legendary Saint-Nectaire cheese is made. Did you know you can enjoy this cheese with... blueberry or apricot jam? The jam maker in the beautiful village of Saint-Nectaire, where you can discover unexpected and subtle pairings of flavours, is a must-visit. Enjoy a stroll around this unique village while you’re here and visit the Notre-Dame-du-Mont-Cornadore church, one of the Auvergne's Romanesque treasures. Anyone who loves crafts or unusual geological discoveries will fall under the spell of the unique Fontaines Pétrifiantes (Petrifying Fountains), where you can visit the cave, spring, fountains and the moulding workshops which make the stunning bas-reliefs.
