Forcalquier has a beautiful historic heritage. Follow the path going up to the citadel to admire a 360° panorama of the town and part of Pays de Forcalquier. Roofs of the city, the Luberon, peaks of the Alps or the Durance Valley, your gaze will be able to embrace the whole region from this historic district. The ancient fortifications still bear witness to the presence of the Castle of the Counts of Forcalquier, which dominated the town.
