Cantal mountain range is a group of extinct, eroded volcanic peaks, which covers much of the department.If it hadn't finally burst millions of years ago, this would be Europe's largest volcano, one even larger than Etna, with a surface area of over 2,700 m2 (8,860 sq. ft). The Cantal range offers six outstanding sites with a rich and attractive natural environment and a cultural heritage which is as preciously protected as its natural resources.
