A village leaning against the Albion plateau
The village of Banon in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence department is backed by the Albion Plateau, a limestone plateau pierced with sinkholes that forms a gigantic aquifer basin whose underground rivers feed the outlet of Fontaine-de-Vaucluse. These water-collecting rivers can - like the Albion River - reach over 2,034 ft (620 m) in depth and have water volumes drowned at over 3,018 ft (920 m). Straddling the three departments of Vaucluse, Drôme and Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, the Albion plateau extends from the Montagne de Lure to Mont Ventoux.
