Listed as one of the Most Beautiful Villages of France, Roussillon is also the ochre village par excellence. All its well-kept houses are of the ochre colour. The central square is magnificent, decorated with flowers and lined with restaurants. This village also offers a beautiful view of the peaks in the fairies' valley (Val des Fées) and the giant's causeway (Chaussée des Géants). The palette of colours is stunning!
The ochre and applied pigments conservatory (Conservatoire des Ocres et Pigments Appliqués ) explains how pigments are manufactured.
