Domaine du Puits d'Auzon - La Sinne

Vauvenargues - Forest

La combinaison des domaines du Taulisson, de Lambruisse et de la Sinne-Puits d'Auzon, qui enjambent la montagne des Ubacs sur le repli nord de Sainte-Victoire, offre une mosaïque de paysages et de lieux mémoriels : forêt de chênes, garrigue, champs, bâtisses de charme.

C'est notamment le cas de la ferme de la Sinne, où sont installés les astronomes aixois, et de celle de Puits d'Auzon, autrefois occupée par les Templiers puis par les chevaliers de Saint-Sépulcre. Elle servit à l'accueil des malades, des pèlerins et autres voyageurs. Autour de Puits d'Auzon et de la Sinne ont été révélés les vestiges d'un oppidum, d'un castrum médiéval et de structures agraires plus récentes. Aujourd'hui ces espaces sont parcourus par deux troupeaux ovins qui participent à l'entretien du milieu. Au nord, la ferme de Lambruisse devrait à terme être destinée à des visites pédagogiques et sportives. Sur le Taulisson, de l'autre côté de la montagne des Ubacs, d'anciennes charbonnières ont été dégagées de la végétation qui les dérobait à la vue du promeneur. Des fouilles archéologiques sur le promontoire de La Citadelle, révèlent aussi des traces d'habitat et de rites datant du néolithique.
