Gorges du Pont du Diable, La Vernaz

4.5
#13 of 24 in Nature in Haute-Savoie
Geologic Formation Nature / Park
See the gripping beauty that erosion can create at Gorges du Pont du Diable. The jagged crags shift in color and savagery as you navigate the hiking trails. The Devil’s Bridge, or Pont du Diable, is a bridge built by Benedictine monks to transport goods and knowledge between two abbeys in the first half of the 11th century. It is one of three bridges in the gorge with the same name. The bridge is no longer open to traffic, but you'll get a good view of it from a newer bridge built nearby.

  • At the bottom of the undergrowth hides from the Devil's bridge gorges, continuation of the Jotty dam. Awesome, the view is truly beautiful. The 40-minute visit was accompanied by a lively guide.

  • 40 min, accompanied by a tour guide. The heart of the Gorge is beautiful. Careful though if you have Vertigo and a certain physical condition you need to come back once the finite visit. Provide good shoes

  • Very interesting tour of 40 minutes. Beautiful and well preserved site. Attention, a lot of stairs to go up to the back. I do not recommend the restaurant at the exit of the Gorge (expensive and very little on the plates), except maybe for a drink.
