The main tourist attractions of Rougon
The main attraction of Rougon is of course the Verdon Regional Natural Park which attracts thousands of tourists all year round. The activities to be done in this park are so varied that everyone will find something for everyone: hiking to discover the exceptional fauna and flora, water hiking, but also canyoning, rafting or whitewater canoeing or even more calm water sports on Lake St. Croix, which extends to the end of the gorges and where you can sail, windsurf and even swim. A privileged climbing universe with more than 900 routes installed in its gorges, this park is very popular with climbers from all over the world. Don't miss "Le Point Sublime" which is one of the remarkable viewpoints that offers you a breathtaking view of the Gorges du Verdon, located on the right bank, just below Rougon.
However, it is good to know that the village of Rougon does not lack charm. Just at the entrance to the gorges, above the village, you can discover the ruins of the fortified castle that for centuries defended the access road to Castellane thanks to its position perched on a vertiginous rocky ridge. A stroll through the alleys of Rougon will make you discover its rich heritage: old 18th century bridges crossing the Verdon, fountains and wash houses, water troughs, but also oratories and beautiful chapels such as Notre Dame de la Roche and Saint Romain in Romanesque style or the Saint-Christophe Romanesque chapel.
Rougon is a resort that is really worth the trip and will make you discover an exceptional natural setting through many activities for all tastes and budgets.
