  • We did some walking from Centre d'accueil on the Route de la Traversée. The road itself is worth the trip, passing through a forest of incredible. When we enter then in the paths meet plants not seen, and those who have a certain age come to mind descriptions salgariane. Meet then easily various birds, who come to share your picnic, and other animals such as green lizards and mongooses.
