Petit Futé's opinion on THE STRONG

Plate millesim 2022

Fortress of the Luberon, built on a rocky outcrop, the fort controlled by its exceptional strategic position the only easy passage of the Luberon in the valley of Aiguebrun in Buoux. Fortified since the 12th century, Catholics and Protestants fought over the square during the religious wars and took it in turn before Louis XIV ordered its dismantling, fearing that the fort would serve as a refuge for the Huguenots. We can still see the three enclosures, the 16th century defensive wall, the ruins of various houses and the remains of a Romanesque chapel. The many silos dug in the rock were used to guarantee supplies in the event of a siege and a secret staircase allowed the assailants to escape. From the top of the rocky point, at the foot of the keep from which Lord Jean de Pontevès was precipitated, the view is spectacular. The fort site is dangerous, watch your children carefully so they don't escape you. No more internet connection for GPS there, but you will find it because it is well indicated.

Magnifique fort en reconstruction grâce aux entrées sur le site. La vue panoramique est à couper le souffle. Pensez à prendre de bonnes chaussures car l'accès est difficile.
