The Gorges de Daluis

The Gorges de Daluis are immense walls over 900 meters long, carved out of the red schist, the source of their particular color. Take the balcony road that crosses them, it will offer you the most beautiful views of the Gorges… without forgetting a stop at the Pont de la Marie. At 80 meters high, it is the most vertiginous point of the Gorges. Do you dare to venture there?

The legend of the Pont de la Mariée (The Bride’s bridge)

Overlooking the 80-meter precipice, the Pont de la Mariée is a veritable work of art, it allowed at the time to reach Guillaumes from Nice by tram. story came to haunt him.
What happened on July 30, 1927?
A young couple on their honeymoon in the valley wanted to visit the gorges around 9 p.m.
The limousine with which they arrived in Guillaumes therefore sets out again in the direction of the gorges and stops at the bridge.
The young wife deceived by the darkness, as her husband declared, would have jumped the bridge.
But did she fall on her own, the question remains… After this tragedy, the tram bridge was renamed “the bridge of the Bride”.
