This is one of those roads that you would never find by yourself and just blows you away once you are there.

To start, going west- find the minor road D211b and just follow it. This road is mostly a 1 to 1.5 lanes with many blind corners. This is not a fast journey so just enjoy it for what it is- which is one of the most spectacular routes in the world.

Fortunately not too many people know about this road- so you don't see much in the way of traffic. But again, take it slow and enjoy it!

Fun fact- They run the Tour de France down this road- Wow, those guys have some big cajones..
