A vast hollow structure with two metal rods preventing it from leaning outwards. The bole supports many large branches – there is also evidence of many others cut off at heights between 10′ and 20′. It is said that a barber shop once operated inside the tree, offering its services to the faithful as they left the church after mass. The caption on the postcard reads ‘Un des fameux Ifs millenaires datant de Jules Cesar, 30 personnes peuvent aisement tenir a l’interieur’.
