Built in 1672 with stones taken from the former castle, the Clock Tower is the symbol of Eygalières' independence. In 1660, by paying the ransom demanded for the Duke de Guise, the village lord was taken hostage by the Spanish and the villagers acquired the rights over their lands.
The other main monument in the village is the vestige of the 13th century castle, of which only the vaulted ground floor still remains. The statue of the Virgin was placed on the roof in 1893 to commemorate a miracle (nobody knows what that miracle was...) and seems to still be protectively watching over the village.
Please note that most restaurants in Provence do not open until 7:30 in the evening. Reservations are needed in the high season, especially for groups.
