Back to Hiking - Circuit de Lourquière

  • February 10, 2013 · 9:30 AM

4 + hrs, 9.7 kms, hills

Nice East, up the valley of the Paillon piercing even Cantaron; continue by road to the bridge RD.2204b Peille and turn right to follow the road until RD.21 The Grave (parking the station).


Rail access possible from the Gare St-Roch in Nice East.

The site "Cézanne" Peillon, with its tall houses with simple facades surrounded by terraced olive groves and cypresses, contrasts with the nearby Valley Paillon for industrial and artisanal, which held its course downwards nonchalant. The vast quarries and cement La Grave-de-Peille is discovered during the initial climb will be quickly forgotten in this circuit aesthetic that surrounds the bastion limestone peak Lourquière: old arch bridges, paved trails and Mediterranean architecture create an authentic atmosphere in which to walk, we must not forget to walk the way medieval alleys that crisscross the village of Peillon, perched on a spur where stands the parish church of the eighteenth century.

Depending on weather if picnic viable - lets see

    Thank you very much Marjie! Clement and I spent a very pleasant day and I am looking forwards to meeting again the group. With its "habitués" and its new faces, all of them very congenial!
