The tiny village of Larnas with its “Garrigue” and lavender scents, much loved by epicureans and hikers should be explored hand in hand. Mother Nature did things right, the sky is clear and pure day and night on this limestone plateau … Urania, the muse of astronomy would appreciate.
You may want to take your time to lie down next to the Saint-Pierre church. This twelfth-century Romanesque jewel has its place of honor among meadows and lavender fields, attracts the visitor with the harmony of its dome and apse. Open the door to a beautiful and sober interior. Its amazing acoustics contribute largely to the magic of the place. From here, a walk leads to the Nègue valley, where you’ll find a small creek of an unsuspected blue. Another path making its way through the cliffs of the Sainte-Beaume gorges leads to the famous “hermit cave” Montanus, who is believed to have created the village of Saint Montan. This charming village is worth a detour for its impressive picture postcard setting.
