  • A very beautiful hike. We started from the dam and followed the blue route to the top. It was indicated this would take about two hours and this was a good estimate. At the top of the mountain you can find an old monastery that has been renovated. It was not open to visit when we were there (Friday 18th of September). However, the most spectacular thing at the top was the view.
  • Paul Cezanne’s favorite mountain!
