The Massif Central is an elevated region in south-central France, consisting of mountains and plateaus. A flatter area with many cities and towns appears brown, reaching from the center to the top center of the image.

Southwest of this flatter brownish area is a green area with dark brown peaks. The Pas de Peyrol, a mountain pass located in Auvergne, France, is found amidst these mountains on the slopes of Puy Mary (1,787 m). At an elevation of 1,589 meters, it is the highest road pass in the Massif Central.
