Reminder: how to behave in Marseille natural heritage
The Calanques mountains range is a fragile natural space, steep and rocky that is not secured. It can be dangerous with crumble, falling branches or trees, cliff edges…. Visitors must wear walking shoes and have water, food and a map of the spot. Of course a mobile phone can be very useful as well. Remember, you must take back your rubbish and leave the place shiny clean.
The Calanques mountains range is made of gorgeous marked walking trails. Anyone who chooses to leave the trails puts nature (and the rare plants) in danger. Therefore shortcuts are not a good idea, and cause rock slides. Piles of rocks are home to the « Sabline de Provence », a protected plant that is endemic in the Calanques.
How to behave in Marseille natural heritage :
