    To know : The Arroux valley
    At Etang-sur-Arroux, the valley narrows, forming a threshold. The high slopes recede a little. The tense bottom of the Autun Plain gives way to a maze of hills, criss-crossed by small valleys where the Arroux valley retains its dominance.
    On either side of the Arroux, a succession of gentle reliefs on which the eye bounces or wanders, reveals a depth to the assertive slopes of the Morvan or the Montagne Autunoise which rise in the background. Here, what catches the eye is the coexistence of grassy hills, underlined by a graphic bocage, wooded hillsides that refocus the gaze on the valley floor, or the successive shifts from a belvedere to a more intimate background.
