Gorges de l'Asco, Asco
(5/5 based on 50 reviews on the web)
To reach the remote villages of the valley of Asco, you must first pass through Gorges de l'Asco. Drive along a nearly 4 km (2.5 mi) defile, featuring a wild, desolate landscape of red granite and sparse scrub. The thin road follows the winding course of the river, with rock and scree slopes rising up on either side, prickly juniper bushes clinging to them. Close to the river bed, a few small pines add a touch of green. At points along the ravine, the river collects into clear pools that may just inspire you to jump in. Near the top, pause to admire the old stone bridge, perched precariously astride the running water. To visit Gorges de l'Asco on your trip to Asco, use our Asco tour planner.

  • Beautiful valley with a clean and clear water. the road that goes to the association and very narrow. Out of season it is exotic.

  • A little market and you're thrilled the water is beautiful; as the huge boulders and the Genoese bridge where are grazing a few cows very good time

  • Nice Gorge Valley. Very narrow street with great gorges (gorges of ASCO) joins skin ASCO (small village). On the way stop turtle Valley (Greek tortoise breeding) (€6)
