    Unfortunately the bridge being in work has not allowed us to see work it will be operational in 2019 to strongly advise due to its rarity 'eight in the world. "

    We recommend that you visit theatralitsee. "Guides-actors" are very good in their roles, special mention to Suzanne Simoneau... A visit which is interesting from the point of view of what to know about this kind of work of art in its historical and geographical context. We expect the completion of the work (2019) to review the ferry in its original state.

    Home of the ferry which is located on the side Echillais. This place is a must visit this place in addition to the crossing on the nacelle of the ferry. The transporter is currently under renovation bridge, visit this House of the ferry is really essential.
