Before heading to ?La Baume Auriol?, a farm on the other side of the Cirque, have a look at the village, which has been rebuilt (picture 2), renovated, a bit too much to my taste, but it is better than just ruins as I have seen 30 years ago, even the little church has visitors again (picture 3). Walking around the village, enjoy the wild flowers (picture 4).
Walking on the small paths or the main road, you always will have beautiful views on the cliffs, gorges, and the small village (picture 5), you are far from the hectic cities, it is not only an impression, it is a reality!
When you drive up to la Baume Auriol, have a stop there and look at the cirque from the other side (picture 1), it is as impressive.

To reach Navacelles :
If you drive on motorway A75, Way out 49 at Le Caylar, RD9, then RD152 direction St Michel and St Maurice de Navacelles and then La Baume Auriol (25 km)
From East described above.
Have a detailed map, many small roads go across the Causses.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
