The Capital of the Black Truffle. Aups is camped at the foot of Espiguières mountain, in a green setting of pines, oaks and olive trees. The old streets of this picturesque and history-packed "Village of Character" are strewn with ruined fortifications, ancient wash houses, fountains, sun dials and a superb collegiate church. Set at the gateway to the Upper-Var Verdon area and its truffle meadows, Aups is renowned as the capital of the black truffle. A truffle market is held here every Thursday in winter on the village square.
