I read the reviews before we set off this morning - it is not an easy stroll! This is hard work and we loved every second...well almost! Yes it could be better sign posted and pathways cut back a bit - but then it might...More

A car park in the middle of beautiful but tight country roads, the 5km walk was not well signposted and very stoney and rugged and only saw three sculptures turned around after going a couple of miles not sure how much further to the top....More

Quite a long way from anywhere but a beautiful drive through changing scenery. The sculpture park is a rugged track though stunning vegetation, views and not forgetting the intriguing artworks. At halfway there is a shortcut to the car park in case you get tired.

A most fun day! First, the hike up and down the mountain is good--nice vistas, good trails, well-marked. Second, the sculptures range from comical to serious...but all are interesting and nicely spaced along the walk. Third, the little village of Mayronnes is itself a quiet...More

Great way to gets kids on a hill walk. Ours were nearly 6 and just 8. Would be a tough 7km walk on a very hot day, but it was cloudy so a great success. There's a tap at the start/end so TAKE WATER!

This would be a fabulous walk without the sculptures and they amaze and amuse. Take water and hats. There is a paddling opportunity about 2/3 of the way round. Never busy, usually just us and the sound of birds and breeze.

The sentier sculpturel is well worth a trek - the permanent exhibition, founded by a local artist called Bozo, is patchy (sometimes literally - vandalism has been an issue unfortunately). Every year, on the longer of the two circuits, there is a temporary exhibition, which...More

There is a free car park where you start the walk. Across the road is a map of the various routes you can take. We went back twice to do different walks. Paths are well marked and clear. Some fairly hard uphill climbs. Some in...More

This starts at a parking lot beside a tiny village in the mountains in the middle of nowhere. The road is one lane and curvy; you should look up directions before you set out, as there aren't many signs until you get right there. We...More

This is a very unusual walk in a fairly remote area 15 miles or so from Carcassone. Quite often in summer there is nothing parked in the car park. The walk is about 3 miles and a little rugged in places - especially if you...More
