France's Tarn gorges: Of myths and mountains

In southern France, we discover the Tarn gorges – Europe's longest and deepest canyon with cliffs plunging 600 metres in parts. The area is home to a whole host of myths, such as the village of Sainte-Enimie, named after a princess. Legend has it that Sainte-Enimie cured leprosy with the healing powers of the river. Meanwhile, perched at the top of the mountains, we meet a group of friends living in a community: away from the rest of the world, in an idyllic location.
