Lost in the middle of the "garrigue" bushes, this battery overlooks the Salon de Provence military air field. A good way to look at the planes while visiting the place!

My experience, Explo description: 

This dozen of bunkers are located close to the Salon de Provence military air field. They were built by the Germans during WWII to prevent the air field from air attacks.
This site is absolutely unknown, so it remains well preserved, what is usually rare, because most of German vestiges of bunkers in the area have been destroyed or degraded.

Open air anti aircraft bunkers and shelters

The view over Salon de Provence and Alpilles mountains

My personal recommendations: 

Good place to visit during a mountain bike trip in the neighbouring hills
