A walk in Manosque

Manosque is a town located in Provence in Lubéron

Manosque is the most populated city In The Alps-de-Haute-Provence, it must be said right away it is not a very touristy city, the old centre is certainly quite pretty but few people spend their holidays in Manosque. Manosque is interesting as a city stop for a visit to Lubéron or the awesome Gorge of Verdon which are located an hour's drive away.
