Itinerary description

This is a short hike to and around the Fort de Buoux medieval fortress., which was built on top of a huge rock outcropping in the Aiguebrun valley, in the Grand Luberon mountains of Provence. In addition to the fortress, there are ruins of an old church as well as remnant dwellings of ancient inhabitants. The views from the fortress are spectacular. And there is a great surprise on the way down, if the path of the hidden stairs is taken.
