La Tour d'Aigues LA TOUR D'AIGUES

At the southern gateway into the Luberon Regional Natural Park, the village of La Tour d'Aigues is a dynamic winemaking and cultural centre.

In the heart of the village lie the magnificent, somewhat troubling ruins of the chateau - in its day, the chateau was the most beautiful Renaissance chateau in Provence.
It was severely damaged during the French Revolution, and has since been partly restored. The chateau is the scene of intense cultural activity all year long. The underground floors are home to a Faience Museum which pays homage to the former activity of the village.
Many exhibitions and performances also take place in the chateau.
See the vestiges of the Renaissance chateau, the Faience museum, the fabric of the village with many 17th and 18th century homes, the Tourel Tower, which became a dovecote in the 15th century, the 13th and 15th century priory, now the Town Hall, the 17th-century 2-arch bridge.
