This precious town in French Provence "hangs" on a rocky outcropping and is surrounded by vines and lavender fields. There are charming restaurants and hotels and small, cobblestone streets which give off a peaceful vibe. It's worth visiting.
In Russillon one can find one of the most fascinating landscapes in Europe: Ochre Mine, a finite clay that prehistoric people were using as a pigment to paint their caves and their bodies. In fact, yellow and red ochres that originate in Rousillon (subjecting the ore to chemical processes) are considered the best in the world. It´s a lovely experience to take a stroll where the clay is and to see, one more time, the marvels that only nature is capable to create.
It´s a really fantastic region where you can do all kinds of activities like horse riding, kite surfing, walks on the plains or in the mountains, fishing in the sea or in the river, and also where you can take great pictures.
