An impressive show
This massif, finely sculpted by erosion, extends over 8 km between Vaison la Romaine and Carpentras. Amidst the typically Mediterranean greenery and limestone façades, you will need a little puff and determination to reach the crest of St Amand, the summit located at a height of 734 metres. Make the most of the panoramic views on offer to you along the entire footpath. You will be sure to be able to make out the vines enabling the production of the renowned wines of Gigondas or even Beaumes de Venise. Although the footpaths are marked, the ideal thing is to buy a map at the tourist office to be certain that you do not lose your way.
The site abounds in mountain bike trails. An original way to discover the sites hidden along the route, such as the Pas de l’Aigle or the Prébayon monastery ruins. Please note: if you are a climbing enthusiast, this is The Place To Be!
