Situated on the north face of Luberon and built on top of a rocky steep, the old village is an exceptional site, settled in natural surroundings made of forests, "combes" and rocks.

After a stroll in the old village lanes, you will discover a spectacular scenery : the collegiate church Notre Dame d'Alidon and the ruins of the medival castle.

 

The fortress of Oppède Le Vieux :

Of this 13th century stronghold, only a few ruins are left.

The remaining walls, arches and vaulted rooms can fire up your imagination about how life was lived there.

The castle is the Baron Meynier family's seat who started the crusade against the Waldenses in 1545 in Cabrières d'Avignon and Mérindol.
