Les Mourres in Forcalquier

The ruin-like rock formations of this site overlook the Forcalquier basin, the Durance and the Valensole plateau. Les Mourres (in Provençal, the word mourre means a muzzle or a head) make up a wild and highly unusual landscape formed by erosion in the same way as the hoodoos or fairy chimneys:  they might look like heads, mushrooms, arches or bridges to you!
