castel of lauris luberon

One of the Luberon's perched villages, it dominates the Durance valley and is surrounded by vines and olive trees.

What to see and visit: the old village; the seventeenth and eighteenth-century fountains; the church, which was rebuilt in 1702 on the foundations of a fifteenth-century chapel; the wrought-iron campanile built in 1857, the castle, which was rebuilt in the eighteenth century on the ruins of a medieval fortress.
