"Forcalquier has a rich history as a county town. The streets of the historic center invite you to linger."
From alleys to squares, from Gothic fountains to beautiful residences, from cathedrals to chapels, the heritage can be discovered in an atmosphere of a Provencal village .
A 360 ° panorama awaits you at the top of the Citadel. The view wanders from the roofs of the city to the first peaks of the Alps in the Durance valley, towards the nearby Montagne de Lure and the Luberon .
Besides the view, this place will amaze your ears! Indeed, next to the chapel you will discover one of the rare Carillon in Provence which is played "with a fist". On Sunday morning and on bank holidays you can hear its musicality with traditional tunes.
- If you like markets , you will not be disappointed on Monday morning in Forcalquier ! It is said to be the largest market in the region. It stretches across all the streets of the city in an incredible atmosphere .
- Thursday afternoon from 3 to 7 pm the Place du Bourguet hosts the "Marché Paysan" , co-managed by the association "Se turn au Sol" and the town hall.
Fifteen local farmers and artisans come together to offer quality products all year round and exclusively from their production:bread, cheeses (sheep, goat), vegetables, fruits, meat (pork and poultry) eggs, saffron, honey, pizza cooked over a wood fire ... all in a friendly and warm atmosphere.
