With its fish-filled waters and caves carved into the limestone, the banks of the Verdon have been inhabited by Humans since the dawn of pre-history. Over the centuries and millennia, Humans have lived here, cultivated the land, built villages and castles, and shaped the landscape.
Today, the sentinel villages are the guardians of this wonderful site.
To see: Aiguines and its castle, Aups and Bargème – ‘Villages de Caractère’, the Templar chapel of Comps-sur-Artuby, Trigance Castle, the windmills of Régusse, Artuby bridge, and the history of the Salles-sur-Verdon – a submerged village.
At Quinson, le Musée de Préhistoire des Gorges du Verdon will thrill curious minds.
