Montagne Sainte Victoire

Immortalized in a number of famous paintings by local resident Cézanne, the towering peak of Montagne Sainte Victoire (Sainte-Victoire Mountain) is one of the most iconic symbols of Provence. Looming 1,011 meters on the horizon of Aix-en-Provence, Montagne Sainte Victoire is a picturesque sight, framed by the idyllic vineyards of Provence and changing its hues with the sunset.

A hugely popular spot for hikers, Sainte Victoire offers a striking backdrop for walking and climbing expeditions, with the bright red clay of its foothills giving way to a stark white limestone ridge. A number of trails run around the mountain side and from its peak, the views are the best in the Aix region – a breathtaking panorama that takes in the rolling plains, lush river valleys and hilltop villages that inspired so much of Cézanne’s work. Whether you’re exploring on foot or by car, there are a number of points of interest dotted around the mountain, including the hillside village of Ventabren, a 17th century priory and the dam of Lac du Bimont. The mountain is also a key attraction on the famous Route de Cézanne tourist trail, which passes many of the artist’s most beloved natural subjects including Le Tholonet, Beaurecueil, St Antonin and Gardanne.
