Long Description:

The Ceze has dug channels and cavities that eventually join and form crevasses in which the river rushes.

The most spectacular elements are the pots of giants. They are cylindrical cavities (some a few meters in diameter) dug in the rocky bed of the river by the swirling motion of the pebbles

Schedules free visits but attention dangerous site, follow the safety instructions on the signs at the entrance of the site

These limestone rocks are 5 million years old. This set is a site classified as a natural area, exceptional but also dangerous.

La Ceze a creusé des chenaux et des cavités qui finissent par se rejoindre et forment des crevasses dans lesquelles la rivière s'engouffre.

Les éléments les plus spectaculaires sont les marmites de géants. Ce sont des cavités cylindriques (certaines ont quelques mètres de diamètre) creusées dans le lit rocheux de la rivière par le mouvement tourbillonnant des galets

Horaires visites libres mais attention site dangereux, suivre les consignes de sécurité sur les panneaux à l'entrée du site.

Ces roches calcaires ont 5 millions d'années. Cet ensemble est un site classé en zone naturelle, exceptionnel mais aussi dangereux.
