Alpilles

To the north of the Bouches-du-Rhône department, the Alpilles forms a chain of limestone mountains with rugged relief, stretched from east to west, which rises to 498 metres above sea level and offers superb landscapes: the view over Mont Ventoux and the Cévennes to the north, and over the plain of the Camargue to the Mediterranean Sea to the south. With a history spanning more than a thousand years and a wealth of must-see sites, it is a home of Provençal traditions.
