La Cavalerie


A templar holding in the 12th century, one can still admire its fortified ramparts. That was when La Cavalerie's location, at the crossroads of ancient and pilgrimage routes was a communication hub, leading to the south and mediterranean ports. Its architectural heritage suffered losses during the Religion Wars back in the 16th century, but has been restored almost to its original state.
