Mont Ventoux is a quite famous "top" of the south west part of the Alps. Especially bicycle racing fans from all over the world are visiting the Mont Ventoux. Roland Barthes, a French philosopher and bicycle racing fan, said: "The Ventoux is dreadful. Bald, it's the spirit of Dry: Its climate (it is much more an essence of climate than a geographic place) makes it a damned terrain, a testing place for heroes, something like a higher hell."
