From Marcel Provence’s street, walk up the 262 steps to the Chapel ! throughout the way is a beautiful view above the village and part of Sainte-Croix’s lake. Once at the Chapel you can enjoy the entire panorama. On your way down, take « la grotte Saint-Madeleine » direction to reach La Clappe’s street.
Be careful, the path is rocky and narrow. Continue towards « Riou », its old gate and waterfall. End your trail on Les Claux’s hill and its olive groves.
You can reach back Moustiers’s center by le chemin du Paradou.
