Geocache Description:


 


FRANCAIS

C'est de "dessous le roc" que l'on comprend que la ville d'Embrun a été une citadelle naturelle. La ville domine de 80m. la rive droite de la Durance dont elle est séparée par une petite plaine alluvionnaire. Celle-ci est composée de prairies, de champs et d’une mosaïque de jardins. C'est un lieu calme, sans engins à moteurs (voiture, motos, scooter ou quad) et propice au repos, à la pêche, au jogging ou à la simple promenade.

La cache est au bord de la Durance. Depuis le parking de l'esplanade de la Résistance (N E ) il faut descendre un large chemin, raide à son départ, pour arriver à la plaine sous le roc (terrain 2,5). Un accès plus facile est possible en se garant à proximité du Pont Neuf puis en descendant le cours de la Durance par la route interdite aux véhicules (terrain 1,5)


ENGLISH

You need to look at Embrun from ‘dessous le roc’ (below the rock) to understand why the city was once a natural fortification. The city sits 80m above the right bank of the river Durance. Between the city and the river is a small sediment plain with meadows, fields and a patchwork of allotments. This is a tranquil area unspoiled by cars to take a rest, to go fishing, or enjoy walking or running.

The cache is on the banks of the Durance.You will find a car park on the Esplanade de la Resistance (NE), from which you will need to climb down a wide path (steep at the start) to arrive on the flat ‘sous le roc’ (terrain 2,5). Alternatively, an easier access is possible if you park your car near the Pont Neuf and walk along the Durance on the road with no vehicle access (terrain 1,5)
