Tourist service in Venasque :

With your back to the car park, follow the route des Aires, heading for the “Complexe Sportif”. Take the 3rd little tarmac road (and not dirt) of Les Espuys (300 m before the tennis court) and go down into the bottom of the valley: after having gone along a large house, leave the route and follow the path opposite (yellow signposting) that goes downwards. At the little tarmac road, cross to follow the path, go around the remains of a windmill and go back up onto the road. Go around the climbing rock and go back up by the famous passage de l’Ascle which is like large staircases in the rock. At the top, the path changes direction towards the right (west) and joins a small road. At the “Jouvenal” sign, follow the small road to the right (views of the village on your right) which turns into a path, go along the rocky bars then go down towards the right, heading for Venasque (sign). Be careful when you’re coming down! At the road (Chapelle St Siffrein to the left), cross the road (be careful) and follow the path opposite that goes back up to the village. Go through the village centre to get back to the car park.
