Discover the vibrant hues of the ochreous mountainsides firsthand along short walking trails in Rustrel’s Colorado Provençal. The savage landscape of red-ochre sand has extraordinary rock formations, like the fiery upright Cheminée de Fée (Fairy Chimney). It was part of a quarry where ochre was mined from the 1880s until 1956.
