Lac du Salagou

Our first day in l'Hérault was spent relaxing and later in the day we took a drive around Lac du Salagou. The lake is surrounded by red stone and it amazed me to see flowers growing here. The scenery is very lovely and I can imagine painters coming here to capture the striking appearance of the landscape. On the photo above you see Lac du Salagou and the deserted village of Celles. After the building of a barrage the major part of this village was flooded and only some houses on the top of the village were safe. Nowadays the village is deserted and you can still see some roads leading into the lake.
