Parcours n°5 - Ménerbes
Between Luberon and Monts de Vaucluse, here is a bike circuit that takes you between the hilltop villages and the agricultural plains bordering the Calavon.
From one bank to the other of the Calavon, this cycling tour allows you to discover the villages perched between Luberon and Monts de Vaucluse.
It is a bike route in the permanent footsteps of an agrarian civilization that has been able to value and tame the stone (bories, terraces, walls).
Not to be missed:
Menerbes: the square of the Town Hall with its belfry and the former hospice (House of Truffle and Wine). 14th century church with altarpiece. Wide panorama from the old cemetery.
Goult: Romanesque church of San Sebastián, the castrum of the upper village, the Conservatory of the terraces of culture (walking route). The Priory Notre-Dame-de-Lumière (against the bottom of the village).
Walls: traditional habitat and shaded plots, suitable for breaks.
Joucas: picturesque village, caladées alleys, contemporary art exhibition.
Saint-Pantaleon: Romanesque chapel (12th century) surrounded by tombs dug in the rock, the village.
Les Beaumettes: many cave dwellings restored and inhabited.
