The geographical area of Auvergne, land of tradition
The geographical area is a limited area defined by a human population that has built its history through a set of distinct cultural features, knowledge and practices based on a partnership between the natural environment and its population. Its typical and original savoir-faire mean that the products and services from the region are recognised, as are its inhabitants. Geographical areas are living and innovative spaces.
The Bleu d’Auvergne geographical area is characterised by its traditions and the natural environment. It is, of course, marked by the volcanic events that created its mountainous landscape, which is both powerful and soothing to the eye. But the region’s panoramas are most remarkable of all. The area links history and modernity and is well known for its cheese-making traditions.
