La Mer des Rochers, or the ‘Sea of Rocks’, is an unusual limestone formation sculpted over millions of years by wind and rain into extraordinary shaped rocks that soar above lush green vegetation. It is located above the charming medieval village of Sauve in the Gard department of France.
Up to the twentieth century, locals cultivated cherries, mulberries, olives, and vines on the site but it now more or less all but abandoned.
La Mer des Rochers is a natural marvel that should impress anyone with a love of nature and a little imagination, so I don’t understand some of the comments in the previous reviews. Access is from the village of Sauve via La Montée des Capucins and a winding stone path that may not be easy for elderly people, those with weak knees, or other leg or back problems. The walk up and down takes about an hour and proper hiking shoes are advised. Once at the top, you will surely be impressed by the ‘sea of rocks’.
