(4.6/5 based on 260 reviews on the web)
Explore the trails, cliffs, and lookouts of Reculee de Baume-les-Messieurs, a limestone plateau that forms a unique geologic valley. Visit the Balm caves that are among the most beautiful in Europe. During your guided tour, stop at Baume Abbey not far from the still-traveled Roman road, famous for its 16th-century retable (framed altarpiece). The GR 59 long-distance footpath passes through the valley and brings you to the cascades with crystal-clear water descending down a series of rocky steps. Put Reculee de Baume-les-Messieurs into our Baume-les-Messieurs vacation planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
