Geography[edit]

Localization[edit]

Branoux is located near the mountain la Baraque, and close to the D32 road, on a relatively flat place called la Plaine. Les Taillades is an extension due to the demographic boom caused by the influx of workers and miners employed in la Grand-Combe. Les Taillades was build in the Gardon valley, on the right bank and crossed by the RN106. Blannaves is a hamlet, mostly in ruins and close to the Cambous lake.
