{castellane} french voyage day 10

March 21, 2017

After spending two amazing days in Nice, I headed west toward Castellane, a small almost medieval town in Alpes-de-Haute-Provence. I really wanted to visit Castellane because I read that it was the easiest access to point to the Provence region where I really wanted to see lavender fields and more lavender fields. In the meantime, getting a chance to walk along the harrowing cliffs and winding roads of Gorges du Verdon was pretty amazing. Formed by the Verdon River’s torquoise-blue water, the gorge itself is considered one of the Europe’s most beautiful. It’s 25 kilometres long and up to 700 meters deep, which may not be as long or wide or deep as the Grand Canyon, but is impressive in its own right. Gorges du Verdon ends at Lac de Sainte-Croix where instead of just driving by for viewing pleasure, we actually took a dip and enjoyed this beautiful (though artificial) lake’s warm waters.
