  • Site very nice to visit family. The children were impressed by erosion. A flyer for the children might be realized in order to make the information accessible to children.

  • Unaware of the existence of this place, and visit it was a last minute decision after seeing a couple of photos on a website of the South of France, and only because we came from step. So little programmed was the visit, we arrived at the place without knowing that it had to pay to access, that the visit was carried out on foot and needed about an hour to make it. After being all day walking and seeing different places, that "extra" hour of walk we almost take back. Fortunately, we decided to make the visit. Since it is a natural area that can be reached walking, it should bring comfortable shoes, use input basins before agreeing, and bring water for the journey. The tour itself is a quarter of an hour of ida and other back along the same path. Nice and easy. The rest can be half an hour or whatever you want to invest in see and photograph the wonder that gives you nature. (By the way, the access road is "free"... but in access control does not sell tickets, so if not purchased at the box office that next to the parking, not you can access the place itself after having walked there). In my opinion, the pictures do not do justice to the place. It is shocking to see him personally. It will never cease to amaze me the ability of nature to create these landscapes. And the worst thing is to realize that the beauty of the place lies in its fragility, and be aware that the erosion which creates these sculptures is the same that one day destroy this spectacular set of rock formations. The promenade and the symbolic price of admission well worth.
