Geocache Description:

5 minutes de promenade pour découvrir ce magnifique pont qui enjambe les Gorges du Jabron / [ENG] Just a 5 minutes trek to discover that very tiny bridge over Jabron canyon.

[FR]

Posez votre voiture sur le parking et descendez vers le pont de Sautet.

Il date du XVII eme siècle et a passé les années malgré les terribles crues du jabron. En 1994 le Jabron a atteint son débit centennal avec 240 m3/s. A ce niveau déjà considérable, se sont ajoutés les 800m3/s du Verdon juste en aval du pont de Sautet. Cette crue absolument incroyable est restée dans toutes les mémoires. Et aujourd'hui encore, 20 ans après, les images de la région dévastée sont visibles sur les archives de l'INA. Crue de novembre 1994.

En passant sur la D955, profitez en pour visiter un des plus beaux villages de France: le Village de Trigance et son chateau du XIII° aujourd'hui transformé en hotel.
