The Gorges de Trévans Alpes de Haute-Provence

A must-see! The Gorges de Trévans are a corner of paradise in the Alpes de Haute-Provence.


 


The Gorges de Trévans, via the Chapelle Saint-André

Well equipped, you are off to discover the Gorges de Trévans. The Éstoublaïsse river has carved a narrow canyon 200 metres high in the Jurassic limestone. Located in the commune of Estoublon, about thirty kilometres from Digne-les-Bains, you will enter a space where nature has regained its rights. The Gorges de Trévans are classified as a biological reserve, a sensitive natural area and a Natura 2000 zone. If you are attentive, you will come across some forty species of birds and bats and perhaps, who knows, a few chamois.
In the Middle Ages, a group of monks looking for an isolated place to pray settled in the valley and founded the Saint-André monastery. Today the fortified monastery is in ruins, but it bears witness to past life in the Gorges de Trévans, as do the abandoned buildings of the hamlet of Valbonnette that you will pass on your way.
Enjoy your visit!
