The village of Saint-Floret

Saint-Floret

Description

Huddled against the rock, the village is protected by the keep of a fortified castle. Don’t miss the hall of frescoes in the castle and the medieval necropolis around the church. At the foot of the keep, winemakers’ houses are reached via medieval alleyways. Overlooking the village is Le Chastel, a unique archaeological location with a Romanesque church.

There are still important remains of the feudal complex that defends the village of Saint-Floret. The lower castle preserves magnificent 14th century frescos. It is the only French representation of a version of Tristan's novel
Overlooking the village is the site of Le Chastel with its Romanesque church. During developments in the late 1970s, a series of rock tombs were discovered south of the church, dug into the rock. These cavities are called anthropomorphic for their shape adapted to the human body.
Heritage visits of the village from April to September, every Tuesday in July and August hiking with heritage visit at 6pm.
