Walk in the Provençal Canyon


Simiane is the oldest village in the Bouches-du-Rhône located on the northern slope of the Chaîne de l’Étoile. Discover the astonishing richness of its fauna and ora by moving closer to the canyon walls with its canopy of owers. Before heading back to the village, look up to your left, to the Rock of Castrum, and catch a glimpse of the Clock Tower. It was an ancient watchtower built in the 13th century. You can visit the St. Peter Parish Church built in the 18th century before stopping at the 18th century castle transformed as a City Hall.
