Le Colorado de Rustrel


The small paths crisscross the ancient quarries carved by the man at the time of its exploitation. Funny shapes seem to come out of the earth! In the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, Rustrel lived to the rhythm of the iron and then ocher industry.
Since the cessation of the exploitation of quarries, the balance born of the work of the ocriers and the peasants is fragile. Thanks to respect this place loaded with history, following the markup; A detailed plan is distributed free of charge in the Mille Couleurs car park.
The ground here is very yellow or very red, it is better to avoid shoes and white clothes!
