grand-canyon-like rock

Our friend Jacques gave us explicit instructions to visit Roussillon, what is in his opinion "the most beautiful town in France." What makes Roussillon so stunning is the red, grand-canyon-like rocks that the town is built into. You can see the bright red cliffs from miles and miles away, and when you get closer it becomes apparent that the buildings are literally carved into the rocks. Defining the most beautiful town in France is impossible for me, but Roussillon comes pretty close.
