Vallon Pont d'Arc

Spectacular nature site crossing the Ardèche

In Vallon Pont d'Arc, the Ardèche river took several thousands of years to sculpt the rocks and hollow out a natural arch with spectacular dimensions. This arch is now the access to the unspoiled and winding Gorges de l'Ardèche. Also in Vallon Pont d'Arc: the Chauvet cave with extremely rare prehistorical mural paintings. An exact copy of the cave is open to the public to appreciate the incredible value of this historical site.
