From the village of Eguilles
The Municipality has set up a marked route of 10.5 km, between village and nature.
With an average duration of 2 hours, this route will allow you to discover the Provençal village of Eguilles, its alleys, its splendid panorama and its natural spaces through this mixed route. You will start with the old village and you can see its wash-houses, its castle listed as a historical monument, its viewpoints, its crossings and stairs. Then, your steps will guide you through the olive groves and the forest of the domain of Saint Martin. You will return by the plain and vineyards and can make a stop at the domain of Fontlaure, wooded area classified in the heart of the village.
Without difficulty and recreational, to do in all seasons.
A walk on the surrounding hills then along the Marseilles canal to finally discover the Aqueduct of Roquefavour, an aqueduct-bridge in stone arch 393 meters long, and 82.65 meters high.
The Sainte Victoire Mountain
A walking site, it is explored by all its paths punctuated with restanques. The religious heritage offers several stages to your hikes : the priory Sainte-Victoire, the Hermitage Saint-Ser, a wonderful landscape of Provence around a small chapel built, the Cross of Provence, perched on the western tip of the massif. At the peak of Les Mouches, an extraordinary panorama embraces the horizons of Provence. For those who want to settle in the middle of large spaces, your picnics
will be done in the shade of the pines and the songs of the cicadas.
