Sarrians, square

Before leaving the Dentelles de Montmirail, on the Carpentras-Orange, route, the little market town of Sarrians is well worth a visit.

We know that originally the Romans lived in this area, thanks to the coins, medals and tombs that have been found here.

Sarrians, square

The village was baptised "Piécard", but nothing remains of the tumultous periods in the community's history.

At the end of the tenth century a new village was built, and given the name it has today : Sarrians.

Sarrians, tiny street

In the heart of the village you will see that a few traces of the past still remain: the ramparts, the church erected around the year 1034, and some fine ancient residences.

Don't forget to visit the 18th century Chateau de Tourreau, which many believe to be the finest in the region.

Sarrians, street
