Shaded circuit on the heights of Catus. Bucolic discovery of the Green valley.

The legend says that the abyss around Terrié was the refuge of a huge wild cat which terrorized the inhabitants. The lord promised the hand of his daughter to whoever would kill him. A young and bold horseman went to face the monster and killed him. Brandishing the remains, he exclaimed: "Whether God likes it or not, the daughter of the lord is mine!" ".
No sooner had he uttered this blasphemy than his mount fell to the ground. The shock was so violent that the knees of the horse, the head of the rider and that of the feline left their imprints in the rock. Thus the village remained marked with the name of the beast.
