  • You should not miss visiting the Mines de Bruoux in the Luberon. There's a guide with information in German, you must register before however, because only a certain number of visitors are admitted, so you can prevent long waiting times. It is but nice place to sit quietly and the ADIT entrances to b ewundern, seating options are available and you can buy refreshments.

  • Interesting tour. It was in French, but we were given a tablet with information and guide was kind enough to repeat missing parts in English just for two of us.
  • Things to do. Beautiful discovery and good guide. Cover you if it is hot in l ' exterior, because the contrast of temperatures is high.
