Clermont-Ferrand is also the natural capital of `Massif Central`, one of France`s most attractive regions. The city is famous for the chain of volcanoes surrounding it. The Puy-de-Dôme (4,720 ft. above sea level) is the highest of these and was a site used for worship since prehistoric times by the Gauls and the Romans. Clermont-Ferrand`s most famous public square is place de Jaude, on which stands a grand statue of Vercingetorix, made by Bartholdi who also created the Statue of Liberty.
