Photographer's Note

In the very heart of a large limestone plateau in Burgundy, you will find a small and dark valey where the godess Sequana was venerated by our ancestors.
Sequana gave her name to the river Seine...well known from all the visitors of Paris... but whose width a few hundreds of kilometers uphill... can be easily stride over.

The site was bought by the city of Paris in 1864. An artificial cave was built to accomodate the statue of a nymf by the french sculptor Jouffroy.

If you come along, don't miss the small bridge dedicated to Paul Lamarche who was in charge of the site until 2003. The year of his 101th birthday!

In WS a larger view of the site so that you can get a good idea of the river Seine's impressive width :-)
