Domaine de Roques Hautes

Aix-en-Provence - Landscape

En contre-bas de la Montagne Sainte-Victoire, le Parc Départemental de Roques Hautes est à cheval sur les communes de Saint-Antonin-sur-Bayon, Beaurecueil, Le Tholonet et Aix-en-Provence. D'une superficie de 700 hectares vous pourrez profiter d'un panorama au relief accidenté et aux couleurs ocre (rouge, orangé, jaune) et roche.

Paul Cézanne, chevalet sur l'épaule, puis Emile Zola l'ont d'ailleurs immortalisé de nombreuses fois.

Roques-Hautes c'est aussi des ruines, un gisement d'oeufs de dinosaures classé en réserve naturelle (interdite au public) et une carrière de marbre issue de la brèche du Tholonet.

C'est également 25 hectares de plantations arboricoles - amandiers, figuiers, chênes truffiers, oliviers producteurs d'une huile d'Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée - qui attestent de la forte implication du Département, acquéreur de l'ensemble entre 1973 et 1988, en faveur de la préservation et de la réhabilitation du site.
