Places to see: The castle of Lourmarin
Market: Friday morning
The village peacefully places its 17th and 18th centuries houses a little away from the delicate Romanesque church and the beautiful castle. Built by the Agoult family in the 15th century, the latter became the refuge of gypsies in the 19th century and was badly damaged. Fortunately, it was completely restored in 1921 by a Lyon industrialist who donated it to the Academy of Aix. The castle consists of two parts: the old castle from the 15th century with its crenelated tower, and the new Renaissance castle with its mullioned windows and its Italian galleries. Do not forget to stroll in the picturesque streets of the village and admire the pretty fountains and the old belfry. In the small cemetery of Lourmarin rest Albert Camus and Henri Bosco.
