A surprising valley.
The predominant mineral character appears in this landscape: cliffs, boulders, ancient quarries, grounds filled with water and luxuriant aspect of alluvial forests.
This duality gives the landscape a very special atmosphere, perfectly expressing the interest of man for this place. This has been declined by the construction of industrial buildings (mills) and the use of stone, as evidenced by the many existing quarries.

From the heat of the south-facing hillsides, you will suddenly be refreshed by a frozen breath from the entrance of an old quarry.

It is a 1.30-hour walk (about 4.4 km).
