Underground divings

underground-divings

 These divings occur in the Small valley from Tourne. This small valley is composed of two sources, the goul of the Tannery and the goul of the Bridge, which spout out of a calcareous rock. These two sources are fed by rainwater of the plate of the Gard which infiltrates in the rock. From the simple appearance, they very deeply hide a large labyrinth of gallery going down and which they do not know the end.
