|The Sublime Point
Privileged place of observation, this exceptional site, with no more judicious appellation, offers an incomparable panorama upon the Gorges of the Tarn and the Cirque of the Baumes. Breath cutting !

At foot, that's more than four hundred meters lower, the Tarn makes a right angle curve and this 'fancy' enable visitors to take a look to the lined gorges, and towards the East, and towards the South. Opposite, over the gorges, the abrupt ledges of the Méjean causse give the final look to the character of the scene and complete this splendid painting worthy of the greatest artists.

| « Au dessus des Baumes-Chaudes, au faîte de "la couronne", s'avance "le Point-Sublime", le prince de tous les belvédères du Causse. C'est une sorte de promontoire qui domine le Tarn de 450 m et commande un panorama d'une grandeur incomparable de ce sommet. En effet la vue embrasse les trois grandes merveilles du " Cañon ", à savoir " les Détroits ", " le Cirque des Baumes " et " le Pas de Soucis " » |
