Istres : les jardins de l'Etang



A stone's throw from the city centre, this route you trained, in the middle of the wild Mediterranean flora or mastered, on the history of Istres. Dominate the pond of the Olivier from the Hill of the Castellan and admire the highest jet of water from France, 50 m! Since the Gallic the Castellan was inhabited. You will find pathways to orinieres, the rock inscriptions... The past is beneath your feet! Moments later, you will find the edge of the water where the Provencal engage in their typical sports: bocce, jousting and galejades! The rest of the ride will take you to the Mediterranean garden. Real iron spearhead of our four flowers in the contest of cities and villages fleuris, this garden has more than a hundred different species of Mediterranean vegetation. Before departing remember to the chapel of Saint-Sulpice, dated to the 11th century, it is the symbol of Provençal Romanesque architecture.Amateur history, flora or relaxation... do not choose between your passions, this course combines them all!
