Presentation

The Cascades du Sautadet waterfalls are a series of falls and rapids over a gradual drop of 15 meters along the Cèze river, near the village of La Roque-sur-Cèze in Gard county, in the Languedoc-Roussillon region.
La Céze river has dug out channels and cauldrons which little by little joined together creating wide crevices in which the river churns. Spectacular rock formations have been created. These Giants' Cauldrons are cylindrical cavities some of which are several meters diameter. The swirling movement of pebbles in the river has dug these cauldrons into the rocky bed of the river over time. The limestone rock here is over 5 million years old.

These waterfalls are known as the Devil's Leap, and there is a saying that “In La Roque the devil chomps” which refers to the unfortunate drownings which take place all too often in these dangerous waters.

This natural site can be visited at any time however great care must be taken for it can be dangerous. Follow the safety instructions on the signs as you enter the area.


Swimming is strictly prohibited. Access on foot is regulated.
