Provencal Colorado Tour

The Provencal Colorado of Rustrel is a natural site made of old ochre quarries, this site has been shaped by nature as human. This site, which extend on more than 30 hectares, have been used from the end of the XIX century up to 1992. The ochre workers were digging in order to extract natural color pigments and by the same time were generating shaped landscapes!

We start the day by the Provencal Colorado Tour and by the discovery of the provencal “sahara”!
