Esparron de Pallieres, main street
Situated between Rians and Varages in the west of Haut Var, Esparron de Pallieres is a little village dominated by a dungeon which seems to keep watch over the inhabitants.

It is hard to imagine that in this peaceful village historic battles took place, and in particular the battle of Esparron etween the Royalists and the troops of the Duke of Savoie !
