At the exit of La Tour d'Auvergne, in the direction of Bagnols, you can see from the road a large waterfall on La Gagne.

Originally a Roman bridge

Stone Bridge Waterfall

The Pont de la Pierre waterfall owes its name to a Roman bridge.
Indeed, a Roman road passed there and went up through meadows to the hamlet of La Gagne. During the construction of the road, pottery and Roman coins were found nearby.

Downstream from Pont-de-Pierre, the Gagne and Burande rivers meet. Past the confluence, you can admire a waterfall whose four arms are separated by huge rocks.

The waterfall first jumps a 15m granite step. before breaking on large blocks, among trees and mossy rocks.

Roman pottery and coins were found nearby. They are now kept at the Bargoin Museum in Clermont-Ferrand.

Access to the stone bridge waterfall
