In the neighbouring countryside you can find numerous "bories", sort of ancient peasant's houses which, in the main date from the XVIIth and XVIIIth centuries. Some have been transformed into sumptuous country holiday homes.

There is a pretty walk along the famous but sad "Plague Wall" built to protect the residents of the Comtat from the Marseille Great Plague in 1720. From Cabrières, the walk will take you as far as the East of Methamis.
