The Sainte-Baume Massif

Straddling the Bouches-du-Rhône and the Var, the Sainte-Baume massif rises to more than a thousand meters. Lovers of walking and cycling are in love with its landscapes. This natural site is home to remarkable fauna and flora, including a relict forest made up of a beech grove. La Sainte-Baume is a land of spirituality, Christian but also pagan. The heritage bears witness to this. Marie-Madeleine, a character from the Gospels, is said to have come to take refuge in a cave at altitude, occupied since the 5th century by a church and a monastery. The forest at the foot of the cave is mentioned by Roman authors. As for the ice boxes, they are a vestige of the time when there were no freezers: ice was produced in winter in the Massif, which was then transported by donkey to Aix-en-Provence, Marseille or Toulon.
