The Blockfield of Réals (Cessenon sur Orb)

Réals - 34460 Cessenon sur Orb

At a place known as Réals, home to a blockfield where dolomitic rocks form steep gorges, the Orb gushes into a corridor of impressive rapids. A little further one stands the bridge of Réals, a fine example of 19th-century craftsmanship comprising 5 13-metre vaults on the left bank of the river and 1 13-metre vault on the right bank, joined together by a 50-metre-long metal arch. The unspoilt backdrop of the location makes it an ideal spot for fishing and relaxing at the picnic area just 2 km from Cessenon.

The Réals Canoë Kayak base regularly organises canoe and kayak competitions in the rapids. Swimming is forbidden from the picnic area up to the bridge, due to the strong current.
