The River Hérault at Ganges

I always find it sad when towns turn their backs on their rivers rather than making them central features.  Le Vigan is guilty of this, but so is Ganges, the next town along.

I was there last week for an appointment with a pneumologue at the Clinique and as usual left my car in the parking beside it.  This runs about 200 metres along the riverside and has the best views of the old buildings, the filatures,  dating from the days of the flourishing silk trade.  And the clinique itself turns its back to the river and the 13th century bridge which leads across to the filatures.
