    At the height of the Ganil lock, the cliff falls steeply into the river, forcing men to dig the limestone rock of the cliff by the force of their arms alone in 1845 for nearly 1km.

    It is embellished with a 30m long bas-relief, sculpted in 1985 by the Toulouse artist Daniel MONNIER. It evokes his representation of the river and its environment: fauna, flora, rocks, fossils and whirlpools.

    2:00-2:30 round trip.
