THE TOWER

At ESCALES

Itineray type : Foot

Theme : Cultural

Season : Summer

Descriptif détaillé :

Take the rue de la Tour, to the left, in the direction of Montbrun, then the rue des Mûriers surrounded by vineyards till it becomes a small path lined with broom. Leave this path leading to ‘la Croisette’ and take a vineyard path towards the pine wood. Then enter the wood going left on another small path. Walk by some rocks, turn left then walk uphill on the west slope till you reach the (1) Escales Tower. This square construction, which was recently restored, dates back to the 11th/12th century (listed as Historical Building on the National Heritage Site of France). Admire the magnificent panorama from the top of the hill.
Walk downhill on some landscaped stairs till you reach a crossroads of several paths. You’ll take the one ahead towards the Maurel de l’Oreille. At the foot of some huge rocks, leave the track and take the one to the left, walk along in the pine wood, then go down following a path to the left (2) and walk around the Maurel de l’Oreille (153 m high). You’ll notice a cross on your left. Soon, you’ll leave this track and follow a path to your right, twisting in the pine wood, then you’ll find another track to your left which you’ll now take.
This track will take you back to the tower.
Just before arriving there, take (3) a small path to the right and walk back to the vineyards on another path.
You’ll soon leave this path and take another one on your left with a wall on one side then return to the path lined with broom you took outward.
