A delightful terraced village, clinging to the side of a hill, Roaix is dominated by its castle and church. It owes its
existence to a Templars' Commandery, the chapel of which still stands today. A small river, the Ouvèze, runs through it and
it is famed for the quality of its wines, with vines occupying over 85% of the village's crops.
To see, to visit : the ancient commandery (remanipulated until the seventeenth century), the parish church of l'Assomption (rebuilt in 1736), the chapel of the Templars (former parish church).
Recommended activities : walking circuits, river swimming.
