Ceyreste has preserved part of its surrounding walls and the fortified gates, as well as several 17th-century houses which give the village a great deal of charm.

As you stroll along the little lanes, you can admire the unusual “cabarottes”, covered passages which span the shady, winding streets.

Don’t miss the Roman fountain, in front of which there is a heavy stone trough - formerly the church font.
