Cascade de la Beaume

The Cascade de la Beaume, A refreshing stroll in a spectacular site!
The waterfall is located near the village of Agizoux, 900 meters above sea level, between Solignac-sur-Loire and Brignon by the RD 54.
It is the result of erosion: the waters of the Ourzie river cut into the basalt of the plateau and spring from the top of the cliff to fall 27 m lower and give birth to the Beaume, a tributary of the Loire. Pleasant walk with belvedere platform.
Lava flows-The basalt valley. The path takes you through dark rock walls that represent the ancient lava flows making up the vast volcanic plateau above you. It is the stream which during its history has dug enough to leave only imposing cliffs where volcanic organs dominate. The site of the waterfall bears witness to the work of wear and tear started by the stream on a large rock mass where the organs remind us that the gray basalt was molten lava.
Road signs from Solignac, parking at the entrance to the site. A round trip on foot in 40 minutes from the REYNARDON car park.
