The Tine de Conflens is an impressive waterfall, where the Venoge and the Veyron meet in a beautiful rocky place.
The tumultuous waters of the Veyron and the Venoge have shaped canyons in the limestone rock of the Tine de Conflens. Beautiful waterfalls are visible. The Helvetians, contemporaries of the Romans, erected there a "chatelard", a fortified camp, of which the vestiges of the enclosure remain. A sign-posted path allows access to the bottom of the gorges where you can admire perfect "torrential pots" that "play" with the course of the water.
Let us note finally that the word Tine means Barrel and Conflens comes from the word confluence.
The access to Tine de Conflens is currently closed for an indefinite duration. Works are in progress to secure the area.
