Auribeau-sur-Siagne

Historic site and monument, Historic patrimony, Town / Village in Auribeau-sur-Siagne

    Listed as a key picturesque site in the Alpes-Maritimes, it boasts tall rampart houses, two gates – the Soutran and the Soubran, which stood as village defenses in days of old cobblestone alleys and stair-step streets, all giving Auribeau-sur-Siagne exceptional cachet.

    The village was founded in the 12th century, but was abandoned and devastated by the plague and the wars of the late Middle Ages. In 1497, the lord of that day, who was also bishop of Grasse, invited people from the Ligurian coast to come repopulate Auribeau-sur-Siagne. The church square presents a view that seems to stretch to infinity over the wooded hills around the Siagne, the city of Grasse and its alpine foothills, the towering Pic de Courmettes, and the Valbonne plateau.
