Roussillon is famous for its deep red soils, and the caves where they once used to grow mushrooms.

The first time I visited here was in 1988 with French friends. It had been raining recently, making the sandy soil sticky. We made snowballs of the red soil and threw them at each other. (It took a while to clean the clothes afterwards.)

The town is a short drive east from the famous hill-town of Provencal hill town of Gordes and from the Forêt des cèdres.
