Malaucène

Malaucène is a small walled village of which two gates ,the ruins of the walls, narrow lanes and houses with renaissance portals in calcareous ashlars, and a few medieval buildings are all that remain. Its many fountains receive water from the spring of Groseau, located on the south western side of the village, which allowed the development of factories since medieval times. The village still preserves the church of St-Michel, built by pope Clemente V at the beginning of the XIV century, during the “Avignon captivity” of the papacy. There is also a castle, Le Calvaire, built on pre-existing fortifications in the XIX century and a civic tower with a clock.
