Discover perched castles by bike

You enter a vertical world on this stage. Many heritage sites here stand out on high; at various points you can spot them from far down below. This pattern offers cyclists an elating game as you go along.


At various points you can branch off the Méditerranée à Vélo route to climb to a castle, a fort or a church, all perched like eyries. In each case, the amazing views are enough to make these ascents

Of course, an electric bike makes a fine choice in these parts to help you reach all these perched villages.
