Parcours n°6 - Lioux
Bike itinerary alternating between hilltop villages of the Monts-de-Vaucluse and the Ochres. Landscapes with a palette of colors and exceptional sensations.
Not to be missed:
Lioux: old village at the foot of the cliff of the Madeleine (700 m long), the Romanesque church of Saint-Romain.
Joucas: walk through the caladeled streets of this village of character and discover a unique panorama of the Luberon chain. Saint-Jean-Baptiste Church (late 18th century), numerous artists' workshops.
Roussillon: “Ochre” village or any reminder of the exploitation of the precious natural pigment. The discovery trail runs through the cliffs (old quarries) and the Conservatory of Ochres, located in a former production site, brings contemporary dynamics to this tradition.
Gargas: permanent exhibition “earth d'ochre”, possible visit of the factory of the Société Ocrière de France (Friday in summer) .Guided tour of the Bruoux cliff (mine gallery).
Villars: pretty little flowery village wraps up on the top of a small hill. Here harmoniously blends architecture and nature: you are in the Land of ochres.
Saint-Saturnin-les-Apt: discover in the heart of the city very beautiful old mansions with carved porches and also enjoy the remains of the castle and the ramparts, the priory Saint-Pierre d'Agnane and the mill.
