Castellane is a nice little village and one of the main centres of a trip to the Gorges du Verdon. Castellane is situated beneath an impressive 180 meter high rock. And on top of this impressive rock is the chapel of Notre-Dame-du-Rox. The chapel was built in 1703. It looks amazing from the village looking up and seeing the chapel towering high above the village. You can actually walk up to the chapel if you like, but it will take you a strenuous 30 minutes hike to get there. The hike starts behind the Parish church. I didn’t do this though, as I had a lot of hiking still to do in the Gorges du Verdon. But the view from up there must be amazing.

You can read more about Castellane and the Gorges du Verdon on my Castellane page.
