Follow in the footsteps of the Romans along the ancient Roman road to the Château de Castellet-Saint-Cassien, once the summer residence of the Lords of Glandèves d’Entrevaux.

15 km
Very Hard

After the post office, follow the D911 in the direction of Brianconnet. After 300 m, turn left to avoid a section of road. The route then skirts the road again for 300 metres until you reach the Roman road on the left, where a gradual climb begins (approx. 400 metres) in a mineral and forest atmosphere. There are several cairns to help you find your way.

Don’t hesitate to turn around to enjoy the breathtaking view of the Entrevaux citadel on its rocky outcrop, and this section also offers spectacular views of the surrounding peaks and the rocky bar rising above the river Chalvagne.

The route then joins the road to Castellet-Saint-Cassien, which offers fine panoramic views of the wooded mountains of the Haut Esteron.

Finally, follow the GR 4, which runs mainly through undergrowth, mainly pine, to descend to Entrevaux.
