The Nesque Gorges - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Vaucluse

In the Vaucluse mountains between Monieux and Méthamis, the Nesque Gorges offer an impressive natural spectacle! Along the sightseeing route, discover a magnificent canyon with wild and awe-inspiring landscapes, making for a thrilling itinerary. Made up of steep cliffs, imposing rocks and numerous caves, this fabulous natural site in Provence is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and is not to be missed on any account.

Dotted with tunnels and belvederes, the road through the gorges offers extraordinary viewpoints, such as the one from the Castellas belvedere just opposite the monumental Wax Rock (Rocher du Cire). The rock is named after the wild swarms of bees living within it.

Tucked away in the Nesque Gorges is a small Romanesque cave chapel from the 12th century, accessible via a footpath starting from the village of Monieux.
