Chaîne des Puys | France

Did you know that right in the middle of France there is a chain of volcanoes that might erupt? The chain began to form approximately 95, 000 years ago, and the volcanic activity that formed the range stopped only about 10,000 years ago. So these volcanoes are dormant for quit some time already.

Chaîne des Puys - Limagne fault tectonic arena is a UNESCO World Heritage site. In the background you see the Puy de Dôme,  one of the youngest volcanoes in the Chaîne des Puys.
