10/24.- Wallonia: Dinant: Rocher Bayard


According to a medieval epic poem, the four sons of Duke Aymes of Dordogne rode a giant horse, Bayard, on which they fled to escape the wrath of Emperor Charlemagne. Legend has it that during a short stay of the four sons on the banks of the Meuse river, their horse struck the rock with one of its hooves, thus giving birth to the sharp pointed needle-shaped rock which still bears its name. A narrow path between the cliff and the rock was progressively enlarged, to allow passage first to armies, and today to hordes of tourists.
