La Baume des Maures - Rando 12

Sport, Pedestrian sports, Hiking itinerary in La Garde-Freinet
  • The site called la Baume des Maures is a small cavity of about 10 m², extended by a terrace of some 25 m².

  • The Baume is not so much a cave, it is more of a shelter under the rock, an oddity in the Maures mountains where this kind of formation is rather rare.
    Its most intense use as a burial place was at the end of the Neolithic age: at least 32 small tombs were cleared on the esplanade.
