curiositIEs

The granite blockfield at Salmiech

In Salmiech, a mushroom-shaped rock mass catches the eye.

Waterfall at Agen d'AveyronIs it a natural blockfield, or was there human intervention?

The Rocher du Diable ("Devil's Rock")

It  is a coarse granite megalith on the road between Arvieu and Bonneviale. It consists of three rocks, one on top of the other, with a "beak" pointing towards the moor.The "Rocher du Diable" at Arvieu

It is thought to have been a dolmen or a sacrificial stone erected by the Gauls or the Celts, but it remains one of the great mysteries of Aveyron's heritage, as no archaeological excavations have been carried out.

The waterfall at Agen

From Agen d'Aveyron, follow the signs to Millau for 1.5km (on the D29) and stop when you get to an old quarry.

From there, you can take a pleasant footpath to the waterfall, which is located on the Palanges stream (45-minute round trip).
