Alpes-de-Haute-Provence tourist informationwhere to go - what to see - what to do
Ski slopes, aromatic lavender fields and mountainous plateaus sum up some of this region's varied landscape.
To the north, you have the Ubaye Valley surrounded by some of the region's highest peaks. To the south, lie the spectacular Verdon Gorges with protected flora and fauna.
The west takes on a distinctly Provencal feel with a much milder climate, rolling hills and vineyards. Sisteron and Manosque are two Provencal towns that have retained their character and charm.
Forcalquier is worth a visit, and it comes alive with the colour and sounds of local artisans and farmers on market days.
- Castellane - Castellane is the base to visit the sheer limestone cliffs of one of Europe's natural wonders, the Grand Canyon of the Verdon.
- Digne- the capital of the region and offers a chance to relax in the thermal spa or boulevard cafe.
- The Fondation Alexandra David-Neel- on the outskirts of Digne, it was the home to a lady who travelled extensively in Tibet. The Dalai Lama has visited this museum twice to see the Tibetan art and culture exhibits.
- Historic Sisteron - stroll the narrow streets or 'andrones', visit the Roman cathedral and medieval vestige.
