Castellane tourist information

where to go - what to see - what to do

Castellane lies at the heart of one of the greatest natural wonders of the world, the Gorges du Verdon.  The largest Canyon in Europe is a dramatic series of limestone cliffs, stunning views and dramatic waterfalls - ideal for white-water rafters, riders, climbers, cyclists, bungee jumpers & walkers. 

Castellane itself is a laid-back village with a pretty central square where the locals play boules surrounded by plane trees that are a hundred years old.  The is also a pretty mairie and church at the base of the slope that leads towards Castellane's landmark square rock where you'll find a chapel to Our Lady of the Rock with great views of Haute Provence.
