yakınında: Le Poët-Laval, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes (France)
Le poet Laval is regarded as one of the most beautiful perched villages in France; it is situated in the Drome department (Rhone-Alps region) about 20 kilometres to the east of Montelimar.
During your visit you will pass along the streets through the cluster of houses that constitutes the village to reach the medieval castle and remains of the church above le Poet-Laval: these are the main monuments of importance and around which the medieval village originally developed.
The village has a big car park to the east and there are many small features of interest that you will discover as you explore the village, walking the steep narrow streets, such as small terraces with far-reaching views, ancient wells and many picturesque old buildings, and parts of the original defensive walls. Many of the houses date back to the 16th century, a time of prosperity for Le Poet Laval.
The defensive walls were built in the 14th century and had two main doorways through them, one on the south side and one on the west. On the south side the ramparts were flanked by two semi-circular towers and a narrow passage ran along the top with access from the houses within the defenses.
The substantial castle donjon (the remainder of the castle was destroyed at the time of the revolution) and the roman style chapel were built in the 12th century by the Hospitaliers, both for defensive military reasons and also as a resting place for pilgrims.
