Panoramic view from the Côte des Deux-Amants - Tourism in the Eure

From its orientation table in the heights of Amfreville-sous-les-Monts, the viewpoint from the Côte des Deux-Amants (meaning "Two Lovers' Hill") offers a superb panoramic view of the Seine Valley, the locks at Amfreville, the dam at Poses and the lakes and leisure centre at Léry-Poses!

This hilltop site takes its name from a very sad legend in which a cruel lord, who had refused to give his daughter Calixte's hand in marriage to a young man named Raoul, finally agreed to their marriage on the condition that Raoul managed to climb the hill with his betrothed on his back, running without a break. After he died of exhaustion at the end of his frantic run, his beloved Calixte died of a broken heart by his side. Overcome with guilt, the father buried them together and erected a priory at the top of the hill...

Below, on the banks of the Seine, you can set off to discover the site of the Amfreville locks, where you can watch the passing barges, and take the footbridge to see how the locks work and watch the boats coming and going.
