The Herault river

The long course of the 150 km Herault makes a splendid course since the Aigoual Mount to the Mediterranean. After to have been a descending torrent of the steep slopes since 1228 m of altitude, it slips in a valley bored in limestones of causses, then is spread out a little in the coastal plain. It is very irregular and sometimes very violent and not easy to domesticate. One however finds there some old mills forgotten, built like fortresses to resist fury of its spectacular risings.
