Beautiful place full of vibrant colours and unexpected discoveries. If you want to take great pictures I'd advise to go there in the end of the afternoon and wait for the sun to set. The red glow is wonderful on the ocre!

It is beautiful in person and we took a lot of photos. Take water with you and be prepared for stairs with railings and without.

You can choose between a 30 minute hike and a 60 minute hike, we chose the 30 minute hike - WOW - so beautiful, a easy hike, few stairs, entry fee €2.50 per person, a value for such beauty.

Beautiful little hill town. The ocres are just amazing. However, the 35 minute route takes longer than you think. More like an hour unless you are young & fit. Not recommended for the infirm. We loved it. Wear proper footwear. In the distance is Mont Ventoux

Well worth a visit and only €2.50 admission. The ochre sands and rocks are stunning so do take a camera. Plus the woodland trail is very nice to do

we loved this walk around the ocre cliffs at Roussillon - there were amazing views, it was very hot! I would recommend taking a bottle of water!

Wonderful walking through these colours. Like Broome in Western Australia but with green pines trees, ivy and lots more.

Dropped by about 530pm (closing was 630pm) and managed to take the quick route (2 options, 35 vs 50min) The ombré colors were amazingly beautiful, the route itself was pretty simple & straightforward with signs guiding you through the history & uses of ocres. Fun activity where both kids & adults will enjoy!

We got the senior rate of €2.50 but even so I considered this a waste of money. You can see plenty of lovely red rock formations from the public walkway so why pay to be routed up hill and down dale round a wood to see one extra, admittedly beautiful, ochre rock formation. There are two routes, the longest taking... More

This city is well worth the drive!!! It is a quaint city with a beautiful view! He shops are cozy and the people are friendly. The sight was spectacular and there is a great family winery around the corner in bonnieux that is well worth the visit. Loved the luberon region.
