Todays snapshot Riom city of Volcanic stone

I was determined never to go back to Clermont Ferrand in the Auvergne, thats another story...soo Lizzie and I pitched up here lunchtime on our second day.
A place of contrasts reflecting the volcanic area, The extinct volcano chain is very dramatic on the skyline.Many of the buildings were built in dark volcanic rock and there is plenty of history here.
I had visited the area twice before but had not visited this town, you climb up to it so it feels quite high and is quite smart but friendly , we liked it and spent a pleasant couple of hours here
It is an area of natural beauty
