The cirque de Navacelles (18 Km)
A contemplation place facing infinite of earth and heaven, a grandiose scenary, the biggest european canyon over the river La Vis (18 km from Cantercel). We love to go there and draw, to feel different scales of territory. It's like a water island in the middle of the desert landscape, from the planetary view of the corrie limits until fairy intimacy of waterfalls of Navacelles' village…
