Situated 20 minutes from Lake Ste. Croix and 60 minutes
from the coast, Sillans la Cascade is a delightful village. With its river,
its wonderful shade, its waterfalls and the immense prairies, Sillans has
much to offer to visitors.
The village has kept its special medieval aspect that, all
huddled together, resembles a big farm with a central court. inside one can
admire the St. Etienne church (17th c.) with its pretty entry and stone
facing, the ramparts with their towers and 11 th c, battlements, and the
castle which has been under renovation since the town took it over.
In Sillans there is also the waterfall. A pleasant walk of
800 m. through woods of century old plane trees leads to this wonderful
cascade of 42 m. high.
It is the waters of the Bresque, joined by those of the
source of the castle of Bresc and the valley of Ourc that rush into the swirling
water of the little lake below.
