The history of this perched village was marked by the quarrymen’s trade. It was named after the bishop of the Tricastins, a blind man who recovered his eyesight. Enjoy this fascinating village to the fullest, with its narrow calades (sloped cobbled streets) and the intense blue of the sky contrasting with the dazzling white of its quality stone. Quarrymen shaped the surrounding landscape over time but this stone can now be seen all over Europe because of the remarkable work of these people.
The Chapel of Saint Sépulcre
Built on a hexagonal plan by Guillaume Adhémar in the 16th century as a token from his pilgrimage to the Holy Land, this chapel with a charm of its own, built in the flamboyant gothic style, seems to be suspended in time.
The Provençal romanesque church
This 12th century church is a listed monument built in the authentic Provençal romanesque style. The feature you should not miss is the frieze of the bas-relief composed of numerous figures, animals and knights.
The 11th century funerary tower attached to the church rises on the tomb of Saint Restitut, one of Saint-Paul-Trois-Châteaux’s first bishops.
Maison de la Tour – the tower house
Situated next to the church, this house earned to become a listed monument because of its Renaissance façade.
Village and ramparts
While strolling through the village streets, you will see the ramparts which once protected Saint-Restitut as early as the 13th century up to now, and walk under the ‘Porte Rose’ or pink gate.
