Col-de-Murs

Col de Murs

This small but fascinating area of Provence is a must-see for cyclists and nature lovers. Due to its relatively steep gradient and the many hairpin bends in its route, the Col de Murs has often served as a crossing point for many races, like the Tour de France. The area between the Col de Murs and the Col de la Ligne is of particular biological significance thanks to its altitude and the cold winds which descend from Mont Ventoux and the area is home to the rare Genet Villars.
