The Forcalquier region, situated between Lubéron and Verdon, is a stunning mix of majestic landscapes and authenticity. The region features a wealth of exceptional sites, places steeped in culture and history. In Forcalquier itself, you can explore the old town – a typical mediaeval city with ramparts and narrow streets…
The citadel, which dominates the town, is not to be missed – both for its history and for its stunning view of the surrounding area. Come and explore the traditional Monday market – famous throughout France and one of the oldest in Provence – and browse the extensive collection of local produce and craft items. Many of the local workshops offer tours and educational sessions.
Take a ride in a hot air balloon and admire the landscape from the skies. And don't miss a visit to Les Mourres, the odd-shaped rocks that stand among a lunar landscape. The Forcalquier Tourism Office has a range of recommended walks. Don't forget to take in the lavender fields (late June to mid-August) and pointed dry-stone huts known as "Bories".
