Had an hour to spare between activities and took the walk up to the Chapel. The view is spectacular and though strenuous it didn’t take as long as I thought. Fabulous.

Definitely worth the climb! Make sure your camera/phone is charged as you will certainly want to take some photos from the top - oh and bring some water too!

It is worth going to the top to admire the view of castellane and the Verdon. The path to the top is well marked and there is a water tap near the top (water is a little warm).

Must do during a stay in Castellane. I'm always looking for places with a nice view from the top. Here, you don't have to be very sporty to reach the top, but please wear sport shoes and not flipflops or else (why do women so?).

We climbed to the chapel in the heat of the sun. Quite steep but definitely doable and totally worth it. We sat in the chapel for a few minutes taking in the whole experience. Lovely and cool and outside breathtaking views.

About 20min walking up. Don't forgot the bottle of water! Wear proper shoes as the way is full of rocks. The effort is worth it!!! The view at the end is just beautiful! I recommend it if you come at Castellane!

As per the title, it took us an hour to do the round trip from Castellane church. It is a bit of a climb but well worth it with many benches if you need a rest on the way up. The views from the top...More

If you go to Castellane a visit to the beautiful Chapelle Norte Dame du Roc is a must. The pathway is rugged so would recommend sturdy footware! It was hard work but well worth the effort as the views at the top are stunning and...More
