Evenos, castle

Perched oddly on steep inclines, Evenos is a group of old houses that overlook the ruins of a castle. The main street of the village ends up at the foot of the dungeon.

The Chemin de la Ronde is a way that goes from La Ciotat to Toulon and for those that dare to look, there is the deep crevice of the Gorges of Ollioules.



Evenos, consuls's square


Many tourists visit this unique site.

As you go up to the old village you will find the well known climbing site called the Falaises du Cimay, where 20 years ago rnarble was still being extracted.


Evenos, in the old village


Evenos is formed by three different hamlets:

puce Evenos:
built of rock around an 11th c. feudal castle.

puce Le Broussan:
A pretty little hamlet dominated by Mont Caume, the highest mountain of the Toulon region(801m.).

puce Sainte Anne d' Evenos:
This is the most recent of the hamlets, around which modern life is developing the fastest. However Ste. Anne is not without charm. Leaving the canyons, you will discover Les Grès de Ste. Anne formed of calcareous knolls and deep pits sculpted by time.
