  • This is a venue that you actually have to visit in order to get the full impression of it. We viewed it from a distance and have only our pictures to tell us what's there. After reading the reviews of...  more »
  • I would add my opinion to that of all those who judged this remarkable site.. .these gorges worth... We made the trip to St. Paul with a fluid circulation (in February!) and it's awesome! Unfortunately the weather (wind) did not allow us to walk comfortably. The décor is gigantic!

  • Beauty of nature. It feels so small in this great setting! And all the more fun to go up, or down if you're more adventurous, this winding road on foot there is a limitation of the movement of vehicles. Leave the car in the parking lot, and began a walk of 2 km, at our own pace, without constraint of schedule. We took the road in the direction of descent (2 ad and 3 spend 11, 7, 6 years), and we can venture before the parking lot down, to descend into the Gorge for a swim, a little cold but unforgettable, in the turquoise water. There are mini-beaches. For the return, no effort: we reserve the electric shuttle back (with little participation, but paltry). Great memories for this day!

  • One of the shortest but most gorgeous (no pun intended) gorges.
  • Wonderful place. Joined a guided canyoning tour through the Gorges together with my son. Absolutely great: Nice cool water, emerald green pools, a 22ft jump from a cliff-like rock into a cataract. Exciting experience!
  • The hermitage is awesome, the gorge not much to see.
  • Fantastic scenery. Single lane in places with tricky passing if the road is busy
  • Beautiful view over the valley. Definitely worth the hike!
