A hiking trail of 4.5 km, which lasts approximately two and a half hours, takes you from the Rhône to the sand, from cultivated lands to the forest, from pasture to garrigues, and it allows you to discover all types of landscapes.

history The first traces of human occupation in this area are found in a cave situated on the garrigues of la Baume, two kilometers from the village. It was used as a single burial chamber, 15 meters long and 8 meters wide.
