The Ochres of the Luberon
An intense light, a rocky landscape where hundreds of orange, yellow and brown shades come to life. Here you are facing the Ochres of the Luberon, an exceptional homegrown geological characteristic. To admire them, take the Sentier des Ocres on foot or bike from the village of Roussillon, built on one of the biggest deposits in the world. Or pop over a bit further east, to the Colorado Provençal in Rustrel. A guaranteed change of scenery! Finally, to explore the industrial epic of ochre’s exploitation, go to the mines of Bruoux, in Gargas.
