About
The statue of Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde overlooks the city of Volvic on the Puy de la Bannière at an altitude of 733 meters. Built in 1861, by the Departmental School of Architecture of Volvic, this statue is 5m50 high and is entirely made of Pierre de Volvic (volcanic stone). She stretches her arms towards the city in a sign of protection. To access it, a Way of the Cross climbs to the statue from the historic center. Otherwise, two other paths take you there either from the Grotte de la Pierre or from the Château de Tournoël.

Le panorama sur la ville est exceptionnel. Pour y accéder nous avons emprunté le chemin de croix mais il y a un autre chemin d'accès.
Attention la montée est un peu physique sans toutefois être trop difficile.

Petite chapelle en basalte avec impressionnante statue de la Vierge mais surtout une vue imprenable sur Volvic et ses environs.

jolie petite église, pas assez bien mise en valeur cependant et pourtant à volvic, il n'y a pas grand chose à voir, à faire. Hélas !
ou alors j'en attendais trop de cette cité.
Une musique devait accompagner notre visite, mais elle était en panne ce jour là... Il y a une volonté de mieux faire connaitre ce patrimoine gageons qu'elle le sera à l'avenir.

Belle promenade ombragée à partir entre autres, du château de Tournoël, pour arriver à Notre Dame. Point de vue sur les Volcans d'Auvergne très agréable

Sowohl am Abend wie auch tagsüber ein eindrucksvoller Besuch in dem dunklen Granitbau. Beim eintritt ertönt gleich leise Sakralmusik aus der Orgel.
Besonders ansprechend ist auch der Gang rund um die Kirche mit dem schönen Blick auf die darunterliegenden Parkanlagen.
