Its appeal to tourists draws from popular sites such as Vulcania, the Pierre de Volvic cave, the volcano of Lemptégy, the Eaux de Volvic visitor centre and the spa town of Châtel-Guyon. Riom is reputed for its fabric of associations and possesses the biggest food market in the Puy-de-Dôme department, in its covered market.
