Located between the Lure mountain range and the Luberon, on the ancient ?Via Domitia, Forcalquier is a highly regarded town in Haute Provence. Built in concentric circles onto the side of a hill, its old part, made up of narrow streets and squares, with some of the stone houses dating back to the 13th century, is architecturally stunning. Forcalquier never ceases to amaze its many visitors, with its wide array of different landscapes and the diversity of its vegetation (lavender, aromatic plants...)... Dominated by the chapel Notre-Dame-de-Provence, built over the ancient citadel, Forcalquier, an ancient Gallo-Roman village, has been thriving since the Middle Ages.

What to see, what to visit: the citadel of Notre-Dame-de-Provence (1875) and its manually operated carillon; the Couvent des Cordeliers (a 12th century Franciscan convent); the Couvent des Visitandines (a 17th century convent with cloisters); the cathedral Notre-Dame-du-Marché; the municipal museum, which houses a collection of traditional Haute Provence costumes, ancient furniture and archaeological finds.
Recommended activities: walking and mountain bike circuits, horse riding, fishing.
