La montagne du Roule: climb, visit, contemplate
Culminating at 117 meters, the montagne du Roule offers itself to the sight of all. Yet only those brave enough to take the montée des résistants, a hiking trail leading to it, can detect all its assets.
During this short ascent, pages of history will be told to you by the remains of this – more or less distant – past. Indeed, the Roll, it is a set of various structures: hermitages, fort, fortress, battery and galleries, Liberation Museum, as many reflections of the medieval, Napoleonic or even XX century.
The Roule mountain is also an extraordinary ecosystem including its moors classified as a “Natural Zone of Ecological, Faunistic and Floristic Interest” (ZNIEFF) and a most grandiose panorama of the city, the great harbor and the English Channel.
