The Alpilles Park is located in a rich natural environment filled with history. The Alpilles massif was formed when the Pyrenees and the Alps rose up. This limestone block was 10 kilometers wide and 30 kilometers long. Several successive civilizations have been shaping it for 4,000 years and have been changing the landscapes of the park over the centuries. Olive trees, vineyards and villages have progressively appeared at the base of the hills.
In 2007, this territory was named “Alpilles Regional Natural Park”. In this Natura 2000 site, everything is set up to preserve or restore the natural heritage of the site. Thanks to the various measures implemented, 13 bird species have been maintained and restored in the park.
