The Omblèze gorges and the ‘Pissoire’ and ‘Druise’ waterfalls (72 m). Die (St Marcel gateway, cathedral, ramparts, archaeological museum, Purgnon tower, former bishop’s palace, the 12th century ‘Mosaic of the four rivers’, the protestant church, Valcroissant abbey).

The + of the circuit : Rochers de Chironne (‘via ferrata’- climbing), Plateau d’Ambel (walking).
