IN SEARCH OF GREY GOLD
Day in Castres and the Sidobre
Friday, 24 September (only for companions)
ON THE ROCKS !
Enter a world of legends. It’s a different planet, and an experience that is sure to rock your world! The Sidobre is a “granite island”, an exceptional geological feature! It offers a hundred square kilometres of a landscape that is unique in Europe: huge boulders that seem to have been thrown there by a giant… Dropped out of the sky or rising up from the Earth: where did these rocks that make the Sidobre so famous come from? It must be explored with a child’s heart, with storytelling and while listening to the legends of this country of rock and water.
