Located in the Blanche valley 1,260 metres above sea level, the welcoming little town of Seyne is a designated "Cité de Caractère" (fortified town of character) and "Station Verte" (nature-orientated holiday resort) enjoying a pleasant, unspoiled natural environment.
Overlooked by Fort Vauban and a medieval watchtower, the historic district makes a picturesque scene. With its typical streets, half-timbered houses, dated doorways, ramparts and Romanesque church, it is a lovely place to wander around.
Famous for its tradition of mule breeding, Seyne honours this sturdy and patient animal every year in a mule competition held during the town's annual festival on the second Saturday in August. In addition to this animated event, a horse and cattle fair takes place every second Saturday in October.
In the hills above the hilltop village of Théus lies a natural site that's strange to say the least: the Ballroom of the Capped Young Ladies (Salle de Bal des Demoiselles Coiffées). This mysterious place consisting of around 100 fairy chimneys (column-like rock formations with caps) forms an amazing group of mineral sculptures!
Situated in the Southern Alps on the Route des Grandes Alpes (Great Alps Route) at an altitude of 2,247 metres, Allos mountain pass, open from May to October, links the Ubaye and Verdon valleys. It treats cyclists, bikers and car drivers to a superb panoramic view of the surrounding scenery.
Dominating both the roofs of the village and the Durance valley, the Château de Tallard, built in the 14th and 16th centuries, features a mixture of medieval and Renaissance architecture.
As well as a beautiful view of the surroundings, the château boasts a seigniorial dwelling flanked by towers and with mullioned windows, a guardroom and the Flamboyant Gothic Saint-Jean chapel.
In summer, the château organises events and festivities like the medieval days (Journées Médiévales) and a historical sound and light show.
As the administrative centre of the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence département, a stopping place on the Napoleon Road (Route Napoléon), a spa and health resort and the lavender capital, the town of Digne-les-Bains has plenty to interest visitors! The historic centre, dominated by Saint-Jérôme cathedral, features picturesque pedestrian streets and Saint-Charles hill. It is also home to the must-see Gassendi museum devoted to local history, art and science. Housed in a 16th-century former hospice, it contains collections of 17th-, 18th- and 19th-century painting, as well as contemporary artworks, stuffed animals and physics and optical instruments.
Also worth visiting is the Cordeliers botanical garden in the grounds of the old Cordeliers convent. This medieval garden, where herbs, heritage vegetables and fruit trees grow, is a lovely place for a stroll.
Specialising in the treatment of respiratory and rheumatic problems, the Thermes de Digne-les-Bains thermal baths north of the town offer spa cures as well as fitness breaks and well-being treatments. Definitely one for relaxation fans!
Digne-les-Bains also organises the Corso de la Lavande every August, a five-day lavender festival featuring parades of flower-covered floats, a producers' market, shows, concerts, dances and fireworks.
Barcelonnette, the chief town of the Ubaye valley, is situated at an altitude of 1,135 metres and possesses both typical southern French and mountain charm. Place Manuel sits in the heart of the historic centre bordered by pretty, colourful façades. Dominated by the 15th-century Cardinalis tower, this hub of local activity also features a number of outdoor cafés and restaurants. A network of pedestrian streets lined with shops surrounds the square.
Fans of unusual architecture should make a point of admiring the Mexican villas on Avenue de la Libération. Of Italian, Tyrolean and Baroque inspiration, these luxury residences, most of which are listed historic monuments, were built between 1880 and 1930 by Barcelonnets who had made their fortune in Mexico. One of them, Villa La Sapinière, is open to the public and houses the Musée de la Vallée, a museum devoted to the history and traditions of the Ubaye valley, as well as the Mercantour National Park visitor centre (Maison du Parc).
A very animated Latino-Mexican Festival takes over Barcelonnette for around 10 days every August and features a packed programme of concerts, processions and mariachis.
Situated where Provence meets the Alps, in the Digne foothills, the Réserve Géologique de Haute-Provence is the biggest geopark in Europe! Covering a protected area of 2,300 km², this open-air museum is crossed by a network of waymarked discovery trails and is home to an impressive amount of fossils. Among its geological gems are a rock shelf covered in giant ammonites, the fossilised skeleton of an Ichthyosaurus (La Robine site) and fossilised bird footprints. It is an incredible journey through 300 million years of history!
Also not to be missed is the unique Musée-Promenade in Digne-les-Bains, a part open-air museum with a large wooded park dotted with contemporary artworks, as well as exhibition rooms where remarkable fossil collections are on display.
The second largest artificial lake in Europe at 3,000 hectares, Serre-Ponçon lake is a wonderful expanse of water surrounded by mountainous scenery. Like a sea in the mountains! Numerous activities on both water and land are available there. In the village resort of Savines-le-Lac, an approved Station Classée (resort paying particular attention to tourism facilities), you can relax on the beach (lifeguarded in July and August) and enjoy a host of leisure pursuits like swimming, sailing and fishing, as well as hiking, mountain-biking, horse-riding and climbing.
To take advantage of Serre-Ponçon's fantastic viewpoints, walkers should follow the network of footpaths that run around the vast stretch of turquoise water.
Built over the Durance river, the impressive Serre-Ponçon dam – 123 metres high and 650 metres wide at its base – is the biggest earth dam in Europe!
Worth visiting: the Muséoscope du Lac museum located at the Serre-Ponçon panoramic viewpoint at Rousset, which immerses visitors in the history of how this huge dam was built.
Built at an altitude of 735 metres, Gap is the highest chief département town (préfecture) in France. Its historic centre is the perfect place for a wander, particularly the charming square Place Jean Marcellin and its very lively pedestrian streets. Other places of interest in the old town include the beautiful 18th-century facade of the town hall with its wrought-iron balconies, and Notre-Dame-et-Saint-Arnoux cathedral, a 19th-century Neo-Gothic building with a 70-metre high bell tower porch and a fantastic organ inside.

As for events, the town of Gap hosts the International Folk Dance Festival every July.
Built in the 12th century by the hermit monks of the Order of Chalais and occupied today by a religious community, Notre-Dame de Boscodon abbey is located near the village of Crots a few kilometres from Serre-Ponçon lake.

Not far from the cathedral stands Brune tower, the former keep of the archbishop's palace dating from the 12th century that now houses a space dedicated to Écrins National Park.
To enjoy a beautiful view of the surrounding countryside, visitors should head to the garden of the archbishop's palace (Archevêché) near the cathedral. From the viewpoint indicators there are stunning views over the Durance valley with the peaks of the Embrunais mountains towering above.
Two kilometres from the town centre is Embrun lake where you can enjoy a whole host of water-based activities, including swimming (supervised in July and August), kayaking, sailing and fishing.
Nestled between Provence and Mercantour, the Ubaye valley, whose chief town is the welcoming Barcelonnette, is a popular destination for outdoor activities. Wild and unspoiled, this area of glacial origin, dominated by mountains of over 3,000 metres, is a delight for fans of hiking, skiing and canoeing. In the Upper Ubaye area, nature lovers absolutely must make the wonderful hike to the beautiful Neufs Couleurs lake situated 2,841 metres above sea level.

Known as the "Pearl of Upper Provence", the town of Sisteron is located on the Napoleon Road (Route Napoléon) on the banks of the Durance river opposite Baume rock and is dominated by its imposing hilltop citadel. The historic centre of this Provençal medieval fortified town is very picturesque and contains much built heritage of interest to walkers, including the Romanesque Notre-Dame-des-Pommiers cathedral, fortification towers, narrow streets lined with old houses and little squares decorated with charming fountains.

Towering above the Durance valley on top of a rocky spur is the citadel of Sisteron. Built in the 11th century and remodelled in the 13th, 16th and 19th centuries, it enjoys a strategic location between the Alps and the Mediterranean. This listed historic monument and former stronghold of the Counts of Provence today houses a museum devoted to Napoleon and an exhibition of horse-drawn carriages. Sisteron citadel also offers a superb view of Baume rock, the town rooftops, the river banks and surrounding mountains.
