From the lively town of Gordes, you continue walking across the silent Plateau de Vaucluse with its many “bories”, enjoying the mysterious ambience created by these curious round structures. Later in the day, you will visit a real “Village des Bories”. Only the eternal singing of “cigales” will accompany you through the beautiful Gorges de la Senancole on your way to Mur de la Peste,with its long 18th-century wall built to protect the area from ships arriving in Marseille from the Middle East. Via Tête du Soldat, you descend to the village square with its church, sycamore trees and Bar Lagnes.
