Land of Auzon

From river Allier to the Livradois

Along the river Allier, the testimonies of the former industries of coal and terra cotta are omnipresent. The crystalline soil making up the slopes of the Livradois is cut of deep gorges, and its rocks trap arsenic, barite, galena, coper… The rocks and minerals formerly ran are now found on the walls of churches, castles, farmer houses… Everywhere, directly or indirectly, the landscapes around Auzon refer to the earth, where human works from all epoch vigorously take roots.
