Itinerary

Climb the very steep path (GR 42a), that quickly becomes a staircase to Pierregourde Tower. The path passes the tower than winds over the hillside.

Follow the path indicating the Chapel viewpoint and, 20 m further on, take a path on the left and climb a few steps. The narrow path climbs through the box and acacia to the Chapel viewpoint. Leave the viewpoint and follow the "Chemin de Pierre".

Descend the path, then, when it starts to climb again, take the path down on the left and becomes a small trail. Follow it to a path used by vehicles and follow the vineyards planted on the old terraces until you reach the Hôpital Tower.

Descend and turn left on to the road that descends to Tournon. After the old hospital, descend the stairs on the left and follow the street on the left beneath the old hospital and make your way to Place St Julien and the Tourist Office.
