Hiking in Roussillon

Luberon > Roussillon

Follow this trail through the old open pit quarries with their "blood and gold" cliffs. Routes of 30 to 60 minutes available. 

Genuine geological curiosity and the incredible natural colours, help to make Roussillon one of the most renowned sites of the Luberon. You can walk through this truely multicoloured labyrinth, following the information panels on the formation and exploitation of these famous ocher quarries. Then visit the Ocher Conservatory, located a little further in the village, to follow the ocher route from its extraction to its transformation into a manufactured product. Visit the old factory to see its basins, workshops, ovens, shop and library.

The trail takes 30 to 60 minutes depending on the chosen route.
