40 minutes southeast from Les Genêts campsite, the Millau Viaduct holds several records: the world’s longest cable-stayed deck, the world’s highest pile and even the world's highest highway bridge pylon. This impressive cable-stayed bridge is known internationally.
To discover it, don’t hesitate to make a stop on the motorway area of the Millau Viaduct: the look-out point offers you a panoramic view of the bridge and the hilly landscapes that it overlooks. A 220 m2 expo-space allows you to learn more about the steps involved in building a bridge. You can also enjoy an individual 40-minute tour on the “explorer’s pathway”, narrated by an Eiffage guide. You’ll especially love the fantastic view of the viaduct’s deck.
From the Camping Club Les Genêts, it takes about 1 hour to reach the Millau Viaduct (59 km), one of the most beautiful cable-stayed bridges in the world. In Salles-Curan, take the D993 towards Montjaux. Take the time to visit its castle and church Saint-Quirinus before continuing towards Saint-Rome-en-Tarn. This town is famous for its beautiful medieval town centre, and we advise you to stop there on the way there or back. Then take the D41 which borders the Tarn river. You will cross another charming village, Comprégnac, before arriving at the Millau viaduct.
