The river, la Couze Pavin, originates from the Lac Pavin . Couze means surging river (Fr.png rivière torrentueuse) and this is indeed the case of this one, which makes a deafening noise and, although a small river, flows at great if not scary speed. It goes through Issoire before going into the Allier. The bridge hosts a virgin, as is the case also in Saurier, to protect it as per medieval customs. This one, Notre-Dame du Pont, is a XIIIth century polychrome, possibly a black virgin.
