le Sidobre, Castres

4.8
#1 of 8 in Things to do in Castres
The largest granite plateau in Europe, le Sidobre is a paradise for geologists and anyone who enjoys natural wonders. Many of these Peyro Clabado formations have uniquely shaped boulders that weigh as much as 900 tons and balance in precarious positions. Scenic and covered in beech groves, the area is wonderful for hiking, fishing, and mountain biking. Plus, you won't have crowds tourists to contend with here. Put le Sidobre into our Castres vacation generator and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

    Ideal and peaceful place to visit especially when it's warm. My place preferred: the Robin Lake, small rocks as resting on the water. This is not common. Beautiful hikes in the Park, very clean. Free parking.

    they appear in fragile balance and yet this is not the case because they have been there for thousands of years and intend to remain so long. a two-part tour, a rock to start and then a tour on foot through the forest, a very nice family walk

    The river of rocks at the Lake of the Blackbird and the Peyro-Clabado to the hat of Napoleon Sidobre Park is an ideal place for a walk in the Woods, a picnic, or places to photograph. You will not be disappointed.
