The highest point of a complex group of volcanoes
The peak of Puy de Sancy is the highest point in the Massif Central at 6,184 feet (1,885 meters). It is part of the Monts Dore massif, itself made up of a group of three main volcanoes - Sancy, Banne d'Ordanche and L'Aiguiller - joined by their base and on the sides of which are grafted more than a hundred secondary volcanoes. The current volcanic structures, surprisingly diverse, were produced by the accumulation of lava flows and projections from all these volcanoes.
