The Provençal Colorado - Tourism in the Vaucluse

The magnificent scenery of the Colorado de Rustrel was formed by erosion and the former ochre quarries built there to extract ochre from the sand.

Today the site features a whole series of ochre sculptures and cliffs with extraordinary colours ranging from pale yellow to bright red. The Colorado forest is crossed by a network of footpaths taking visitors past features such as the Sahara, fairy chimneys, cliffs and white desert.
