The Valley of Saints



From Boudes, visit a site worthy of a western setting! In the land of red soils, salt springs, fairy chimneys, volcanoes, limestone hills, intersect over only a few kilometres and form a rich landscape mosaic.

In the territory of Redlands, the diversity of rocks favours a landscape mosaic where salt springs, volcanoes, chalky hills and hoodoos cross each other on only few kilometres. Come discover the Roman spring and its original pond. Join the hiking path that will guide you to the Saints Valley and the Puy of Avoiron. Possible start since the hamlet of Bard (return trip) or by the path at departure from the village of Boudes (loop) of 5, 5 km, 3h. School or general public animations possible.
Pets allowed in leash.
