Land of the legend of the inscription of Les Charmes in Brangues

  • rhône

Presentation

"Whoever has seen me has mourned, whoever sees me again shall mourn". This inscription was discovered at Pierre Brune, on a slab placed against a rock that is usually submerged by the waters of the Rhône.
According to collective memory, the slab was placed there during a period of severe drought which brought hardship to the countryside populations.
But this explanation does nothing to dispell the legend of a "sapine" (a large barge-type vessel) that is said to have sunk at Les Charmes. The victims were never found and the submerged rocks remain a highly dangerous hazard.
