The charming Cevennes village of Thines is a fairly well-kept secret! It’s perched several hundred metres above sea-level and is well worth a visit for its rich heritage, unbeatable views and pleasant way of life.

You’ll follow the pilgrimage route and the route by which the building materials for the church were transported. This tour will take you through the village of Thines from an unusual angle, and on the way back you almost dive down into it!
