This route offers multiple viewpoints showing the geological formations, as well as the chance to experience multiple villages nestled at the bottom of this vigorous hilly area. Three lines of standing stones make up the Dentelles de Montmirail massif, and the water is drained by "vallats" (streams) that nourish the fields of crops, planted with vines and olive trees.
