Vitrolles-en-Luberon :
Saint-Étienne romanesque church, the castle (17th c.), Saint Siméon’s farm, oil mill.

La Bastide-des-Jourdans :
Vestiges of the castle (13th c.), remains of the city walls and its two gates, church built in the 14th century, «Notre-Dame de la Cavalerie de Limaye» chapel, «Saint-Pierre de Pomerols» chapel.

La Transhumance :
The two wooded slopes of the Luberon are separated on the ridge by a narrow strip of pastures. These open environments with great biological variety are the result of the altitude, wind exposure and ancestral use by the shepherds of the villages located at the foot of the mountain. The grazing grounds allow mid-season activity between the winter spent around the village and the summertime transhumance to the Alps.

Trick :
We advise you to leave Vitrolles and ride to the crests and then to go down to La Bastide des Jourdans : the ascent of the Luberon is less difficult.
