Gorges du Cé

Gorge du Cé

in Mont-Saxonnex
  • Former bed of the Bronze, the deep Gorge du Cé no longer flows for several years. The strong glacial erosion has left its traces and attracts the eye.

  • At the end of the last ice age, the glacier from the Combe de Biolland flowed straight to Mont-Saxonnex, where the river split into two torrents. One being more important than the other, the western torrent cut the rock deeper than the eastern torrent (Gorge du Cé). The latter was naturally neglected over the years. Today, the Bronze crosses the village to finish its course on the left bank of the Arve, in Bonneville.
