Chapel of Our Lady of the Wheat

The chapel “Notre-Dame des Blés” is at the top of a hill which dominates the village, called MONTAGARD which comes from “Mont” and “à gard” designating a place from which one can watch, “keep” Area. At its summit we discover “the most beautiful panorama of Auvergne”. The view extends over the southwest of the department to the distant bell towers of Puy-Saint-Gulmier and d’Herment, some 40 km away. On a clear day, even in the east, the Bois Noirs de Thiers can be distinguished above the buxom Limagne, and as a backdrop to this incomparable picture: the majestic chain of Domes and the Dore mountains.
