The Petit Moulin waterfall – Cernay-la-Ville

This artificial waterfall of about 2 meters was created by a spill from a small pond upstream. Like all mills, the cascade was used to turn a millstone, to crush grain or forge tools. Today, the small river that flows from it, stuck in the hollow of the valley, will not fail to delight young and old.
