Description

The Puy Violent, approximately 1592m, dominates the plateau where our famous Salers cows with their red coat and their lyre-like horns graze among the yellow gencian plants. However, there is nothing violent about this place. Its name comes from a mispronounciation of “Puy bêlant” that is to say “bleating mountain” when sheep instead of cows moved to these summer pastures. The climbing of this mountain (1h30 walking) offers a superb panorama of the Roc Labro, Puy Mary and Roc des Ombres (1640m).
