Holy mountains in Provence

Holy mountains in Provence

During this tour you will discover two mountains of Provence: the Montagne Sainte Victoire and the Massif de la Sainte Baume. These limestone mountains originated with the folding of the Alps. They are very similar in height, with the same asymmetrical slopes topped by a rocky white ridge that contrasts with the blue of the sky and the surrounding ochre-colored land. You will be delighted by these arid landscapes and what they offer: Provencal villages bursting with sun; mountain peaks speckled with hermitages, crosses and chapels which have remained pilgrimage destinations for more than a thousand years; and the Grotto of Sainte Baume, the refuge of Sainte Mary-Madeleine, where popes and kings have journeyed to pray. You will be surprised by the Sainte Baume forest, alive with scents which are more northern than Mediterranean, and by the Valley of Saint Pons, an island of greenery and coolness that brings relief in this dry area. You will enjoy your return to Cassis along a natural balcony above the Mediterranean Sea.
