It is worth going to the top to admire the view of castellane and the Verdon. The path to the top is well marked and there is a water tap near the top (water is a little warm).

We climbed to the chapel in the heat of the sun. Quite steep but definitely doable and totally worth it. We sat in the chapel for a few minutes taking in the whole experience. Lovely and cool and outside breathtaking views.

If you go to Castellane a visit to the beautiful Chapelle Norte Dame du Roc is a must. The pathway is rugged so would recommend sturdy footware! It was hard work but well worth the effort as the views at the top are stunning and...More
