Between Sainte-Victoire, Cézanne’s mountain , a famous image of the interior of Provence, and the villages of Concors which are situated in more discreet areas, the large Site of Sainte-Victoire offers a huge natural area at the gateway to the urban area of Aix-Marseille.
Travelling through forests of oaks and pines, through scrublands and grassy crests resulting from pastoral activity that still takes place, here you will find 20% of the French flora and over 130 species of birds, including two pairs of Bonelli’s eagles. Lovers of walking, paragliding, climbing or mountain biking make up 75% of the million annual visitors to this area. Tours to discover vineyards, rural and natural heritage will offer a better way to discover this Great Site of France.
