Le lac d'Esparron entre Esparron et Gréoux les Bains - Lake Esparron between Esparron and Gréoux les Bains
Le lac d'Esparron est une retenue artificielle, mise en eau en 1967, à la suite de la construction du barrage de Gréoux, sur le cours du Verdon. Il est situé près du village d'Esparron-de-Verdon dans le département français des Alpes-de-Haute-Provence de la région Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur. Dernière retenue (plus aval) des cinq établies sur le Verdon depuis 1963, le lac d’Esparron est le troisième par sa superficie après le lac de Sainte-Croix et le lac de Castillon. Sa mise en eau a inondé toute la plaine que surplombait le village, faisant monter le niveau de la rivière jusqu'à 8 kilomètres en amont du lac, dans les Basses Gorges, jusqu'à Quinson. Le lac d'Esparron est un important centre de tourisme estival, fréquenté pour les loisirs aquatiques et pour la pêche (catégorie 2). Comme sur l'ensemble des eaux du Verdon, l'utilisation d'embarcations à moteur est interdite, laissant libre cours aux bateaux électriques et à la pratique de la voile. The Esparron lake is an artificial reservoir, impounded in 1967, following the construction of the Gréoux dam, on the course of the Verdon. It is located near the village of Esparron-de-Verdon in the French department of Alpes-de-Haute-Provence in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region. The last reservoir (further downstream) of the five established on the Verdon since 1963, Lake Esparron is the third largest by area after Lake Sainte-Croix and Lake Castillon. Its impoundment flooded the entire plain above the village, raising the level of the river up to 8 kilometers upstream from the lake, in the Basses Gorges, to Quinson. Lake Esparron is an important center for summer tourism, frequented for water recreation and fishing (category 2). As in all the waters of the Verdon, the use of motor boats is prohibited, giving free rein to electric boats and the practice of sailing.

More About France

France is affectionately referred to as "the Hexagon" for its overall shape.French history goes back to the Gauls, a Celtic tribe which inhabited the area circa 300BC until being conquered by Julius Caesar.The Franks were the first tribe to adopt Catholic Christianity after the Roman Empire collapsed. France became an independent location in the Treaty of Verdun in (843 AD), which divided up Charlemagne's Carolingian Empire into several portions.The French monarchy reached its zenith during the reign of Louis XIV, the Sun King, who stood for seventy-two years as the Monarch of all Monarchs. His palace of Versailles and its Hall of Mirrors are a splendid treasure-trove of Baroque art.The French Revolution ended the rule of the monarchy with the motto "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity!" On July 14th, 1789 angry mobs stormed La Bastille prison and began the Revolution in which Louis XVI, his wife Marie-Antoinette and thousands of others met the guillotine.One decade after the revolution, Napolean Bonaparte seized control of the Republic and named himself Emperor. His armies conquered most of Europe and his Napoleonic Code became a lasting legal foundation for concepts of personal status and property.During the period of colonization France controlled the largest empire in the world, second only to Britain.France is one of the founding members of the European Union and the United Nations, as well as one of the nuclear armed nations of the world.Text by Steve Smith.
