A delightful small village, Richerenches plays host to one of the oldest and most important commanderies of the Templars of Provence (twelfth century). It was founded by Arnaud de Bedos, a Templar brother, who came to Provence looking for both new recruits and land. Richerenches was acquired from Hugues de Bolboton. The Order of the Templars erected a fortified farm here as well as a chapel, which was completed in 1138.
