A spectacular canyon
The Gorges de la Nesque are certainly the most spectacular gorges in the southern region of Provence, after the famous Gorges du Verdon. The once tumultuous waters of the Nesque river have patiently carved, over millions of years, impressive and vertiginous white limestone cliffs. For about twenty kilometres, the landscapes follow one another, sensational, spectacular and grandiose. The green of the vegetation contrasts with the grey of the rock to create a stunning landscape. The Gorges de la Nesque are one of the most beautiful balcony roads of France.
This wild territory has long served as a refuge for humans. Numerous prehistoric remains have been discovered here: flint tools, fragments of pottery, teeth and bones testify to the presence of Neanderthals on these lands for 150,000 years.
A tourist and panoramic road follows the route of the Gorges de la Nesque, offering several striking viewpoints. But it is on foot or by bike that you will be revealed its most precious treasures and secrets.
