La voie romaine et le puits à manège à cheval

This horseback ride offers the climb to the Montagne des Alouettes then, via the Roman Road, to discover an old carousel well. It lends itself perfectly to equine teams. This route is common with the marked mountain bike circuit called Les vallons de Forterre towards the Roman road (circuit No. 205).
