Saint Paul Trois Châteaux

It is said that the tradition of lily of the valley being used as a lucky charm was invented in the 16th century at Saint-Paul-Trois-Châteaux.
Saint-Paul-Trois-Châteaux was once a fortified town and some fine remains of the defensive walls stand to this day, including a 14th century gateway.

St Paul Trois Chateaux

These days this large Provencal market town located in a plain of vineyards is known for its imposing cathedral, a magnificent example of Romanesque art.
This harmonious, elegant yet understated building stands in the heart of the historic quarter, where it is most pleasant to stroll the peaceful cobbled streets.

Saint Paul dans la Drome

As you walk along, you can admire here and there the Renaissance façades, old store signs faded by time, a few stretches of old stone walls, and roofed fountains.
