The Clermontais District Council has been committed to rehabilitating and developing the National Heritage of its municipalities since 1997. A general programme of action has been established, focused not only on the rehabilitation of public monuments (churches, chapels, village squares …), but also on entertainment and making the public aware of the local National Heritage.

Within the framework of its overall policy for this development, it has also created links between the inhabitants and the municipalities, and it works in close partnership with the local Heritage associations, which meet together regularly.

Cultural Heritage Days, which became « European” in 1992, offer the public, every year since 1984, an occasion to discover remarkable buildings not far from home.

Since 1998, the Clermontais has been taking part in this event, which is a great local success.

There are National Heritage Walks one Saturday a month from October to June. These include visits to the municipalities, to historical sites and remarkable local buildings, and different themed conferences are organized and renewed every year, allowing for a rediscovery of the history and cultural wealth of the Clermontais.

The « National Heritage Walks » are commented by local historians and specialists. They are free.
