Sentier des Ocres (Ocher Trail)

  • Trail/Path

Fodor's Review

This popular trail starts out from the town cemetery and allows you to wend your way through a magical, multicolor palette de pierres (of rocks) replete with eroded red cliffs and chestnut groves; the circuit takes about 45 minutes. The hours are complicated, so plan in advance.
