The 12/13 newspaper takes you to discover Balazuc, near the gorges of the Ardèche. The city is known for its prehistoric past.
There are spectacular panoramas. The gorges of the Ardèche have many surprises in store, such as a road that winds its way up to the mountain, and a succession of vaults carved into the rock in the 19th century. No need to hurry to discover the cliffs and the beautiful villages bordering the river, like that of Balazuc.
On board his 2 CV, Didier Second has a soft spot for this town he has known since his childhood. “It’s a place to go, to have something to do. Today, it is for the point of view, it is for the beauty of the landscapes, for the village clinging to the side of the cliff“, explains the member of the Amicale Culturel du Pays Ruomsois. Since its construction in the Middle Ages, Balazuc has lived to the rhythm of the Ardèche, a river regularly subject to strong floods. A site exposed to the vagaries of nature, but also a geological hotspot.
