Le sentier de vignerons de Rognes
Hike - Toute l'année
Située sur un plateau de 300 à 400m d'altitude, entre la Chaîne des Côtes et de la Trévaresse, proche de la Durance, la commune de Rognes offre aux randonneurs un spectacle d'une grande diversité géologique, floristique et faunistique. Ce spectacle prendra forme à partir des nombreux points panoramiques que propose la randonnée. Ce territoire géologique d'exception offre à Rognes une spécificité vitivinicole unique et promet une découverte oenologique de premier ordre. Si la culture de la vigne y est une tradition millénaire, la pierre extraite d'anciennes carrières a su donner à Rognes ses lettres de noblesse. De fait, les randonneurs découvriront un territoire qui a su conserver à travers son patrimoine sacré, les traces d'un riche passé.
