Haute Provence Geological Reserve
The Réserve Naturelle Géologique de Haute-Provence stretches from the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence to the Var and features geological sites, many fossils, and extraordinary landscapes of folded and fractured rock. The site allows visitors to learn more about the history of the Earth and hence understand and respect our planet better. The Réserve Naturelle Géologique de Haute-Provence is now a UNESCO site and member of the Global Geoparks Network. Its museum-walk offers a fascinating insight into local biodiversity, unveiling fossils dating back 300 million years and tropical and Mediterranean aquariums illustrating the history of the sea. The museum’s delightful, shaded grounds feature waterfalls, works of art and a Zen garden.
