Hung on a dry solid, defying age and balance, to 870 meters, the village of Théus stands at the confluence of two jagged ravines that led to the Demoiselles wearing the Vallauria. Created around the 14th century, the castle demonstration of this stage is now gone but the church was rebuilt in the 18th century, remains in very good condition and has a certain charm. The town is characterized by a diversity of landscapes, from the banks of the Durance to the summit of Mont Colombis which joins a variety of cultures and resources: the vineyards of the hills well exposed succeed the fruit and vegetable crops. At 1733 m altitude, rises Mount Columbia, accessible by paved road, which requires caution, magical views across the lake of Serre-Ponçon and flight site for paragliders, where three tables you guidance will restore the size of the territory and allow you to identify the surrounding peaks.
