About this book

Language: French

Without a hydrological exception, the river Durance in the region Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, possesses many original qualities that geographers and naturalists unanimously recognize. From its source at the borders with Italy, at an altitude of more than 2500 meters, to its junction with the Rhone, near Avignon, it descends in no less than 304 km, making it one of the fastest rivers in France.

Summary in French:
Sans être une exception hydrologique, la Durance, rivière de la région Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, cultive bien des originalités que les géographes et les naturalistes reconnaissent unanimement. Depuis sa source aux portes de l’Italie, à plus de 2500 mètres d’altitude, jusqu’à son confluent avec le Rhône, tout près d’Avignon, elle ne dévale pas moins de 304 kilomètres avec une dénivellation qui en fait une des rivières les plus rapides de France.
