Capital of the Aigues valley, this large village can offer visitors the remains of a magnificent Renaissance che;teau which is worth the detour.

The Tour d'Aigues chateau will remind you of certain Renaissance château in the Loire valley or in the Ile de France, notably because it was based on their designs.


La Tour d'Aigues, castle

The elegant proportions of its XVIth C. facade make a surprising contrast with other plainer chateau in the area.

With its theatrical decor it's easy to imagine the past splendour of this Renaissance edifice especially while you admire the still intact gateway which takes the form of a splendid triumphal arch, one of the most beautiful in Provence.

The château remains belong to the Conseil Général du Vaucluse which is responsible for their renovation. Little by little the chateau's original beauty is returning...

Nowadays the cellars host an earthenware Museum with exhibits found during the restoration works and a well documented local history Exhibition Museum.
