Between plateau and low gorges, this itinerary is remarkable for its landscapes and for the richness of its biodiversity. Of great heritage value, this environment has an exceptionally rich and fragile flora and fauna. Dogs are not allowed.

Visit of the Ste Maxime chapel where a mass is held every year for the May 16th pilgrimage. After the mass, the Quinsonnais ask for the blessing of the genet which they keep preciously until the following year. There are very beautiful Provençal songs in honor of Saint Maxime, the patron saint of the village.
