Going up to the castle by cobbled streets, you will discover the remains of the primitive village surrounded by ramparts with an ancient castle chapel (dating back to1056)The panoramic view over the plain is exceptional, covering the Monts de Vaucluse, the Colorado Provençal, the Grand and the Petit Luberon and the Alpilles.
Besides being a charming village to explore on foot, with its winding cobblestone streets and medieval arched passage ways, there are many hiking trails to be discovered. One of the most beautiful is that of Aiguiers (in Provençal "aigo", means water) - between plain and mountains in the direction of Sault where you will come across cisterns dug in the rock (used to collect rainwater). This excursion is exceptionally stunning with the spring flowers are in bloom or autumn when the vineyards are awash with deep reds and ochre colors.
