Aurillac, prefecture of the Cantal department, has 25,500 inhabitants. It is crossed by the Jordanne, a tributary of the nearby Cère. It was the arrival of the railway in 1866 that accelerated the development of the town, which has been known since the 9th century but was certainly built on a primitive site. Several industries are installed there and the manufacture of umbrellas, among others, is one of its specialties. Aurillac has a rich historical heritage, including the Château Saint-Étienne which houses the Musée des Volcans. A renowned festival, the International Street Theatre Festival, takes place every year in the third week of August.
