Montagne du Lubéron Things to Do

    The hidden stairs

    by bluesmama Written May 20, 2004

    These stairs were carved right out of the rock. Quite impressive! You can't see it that well in the photo but right next to the steps there is a deep vertical drop. I've never had vertigo before but in this place I actually got a bit of it. I pushed myself against the rock as far away from the edge as I could get and snailed my way down the steps. Rather scary! But I was very satisfied with myself when I finally made it to the bottom.

    The start of the hidden stairs

    by bluesmama Written May 20, 2004

    On your way down from Fort Buoux you can walk down the way you came - which is recommended for elderly people, pregnant women and small children - or you can walk down the hidden stairs. The first part didn't really look like stairs at all and there was quite a bit of rubble so you had to watch your step!

    From the top of Fort Buoux

    Fort Buoux covers quite a big area on this mountain outcrop. In the old days you must have been able to see the fort from miles around. When you go down the hidden stairs you can actually get to that big cave you can see in the photo.
