At the foot of Mount Ventoux, in the Baronnies, lies a wild and beautiful site, the Toulourenc Gorges, rightly considered to be one of Haute-Provence's most scenic spots.

Starting from its source near the village of Aulan, the River Toulourenc has dug deep gorges into the rock near the hamlet of Veaux. Accessible via Mollans-sur-Ouvèze, in Drôme, or Malaucène, in Vaucluse, this landscape fashioned by nature is awe-inspiring!

The Toulourenc Gorges also offer some rather special walks. Indeed, when the water is shallow in the summer, you can walk along the riverbed with your feet in the water for a few kilometres. Tiny beaches where you can stop for a rest are also dotted here and there, to the delight of walkers.

Perched on a rocky spur, Aulan Castle towers proudly over the Toulourenc Valley. Its origins date back to the Middle Ages. Still intact, it cuts an imposing figure in the landscape with its towers and high walls.
