It is said to have been built in the 10th century by the Monks of the Abbey of Saint-Victor of Marseille and has been extensively modified over the centuries. Vaulted rooms and a cistern were built there in the 14th and 15th centuries. Destroyed during the revolution, it has long served as a stone quarry for the inhabitants of the village. Restored during the 1960s and 1970s, this fortress was transformed into a hotel-restaurant that welcomes its guests in a beautifully restored medieval setting.
It is a proud quadrangular enclosure with beautiful white stone walls and four round towers.
