The arrival at the small Summit of the Summit of Baudon, by the suddenness of the panorama at 360 ° and the contrast of the landscapes it offers, from the blue of the Mediterranean streams to the white of the Alpine arc, will inspire the visitor, neophyte or connoisseur; rarely in fact a Summit at modest altitude (1 264 m) will have deserved the qualifier of "Belvedere" as much. The village of Peille will be admired at the outset, drowned in a huge olive grove at the ridge of the Paillon Valley, with its round tile roofs and numerous medieval buildings such as the Romanesque Bell Tower "Lombard" (12Th century), the rotunde roof of the chapel of the penitents ( 13Th century), the fortified enclosure (XIV), etc. Above, after the Col Saint-Bernard, rises beneath the cliffs of the pied de Jacques by a cornice path in a high forest of black pines of Austria; then comes the Terminal bastion where a lean vegetation (ostryas, Scots pines, lavandes, great umbelliferous, Hawthorn, rosehips, Juniper) clings to the limestone bars typical of the karstic relief
Magnificent hiking without difficulty that allows access to a top booking a great 360 degree view. Several routes provide access to the Summit, Gorbio via the col of the Madonna is especially recommended. of Gorbio
