LE GRAND PRÉ

Open to the public for the first time in 400 years, the Château du Grand Pré in Vitrolles en Luberon is rising from its ashes. Sumptuously decorated with gypsum decorative panels, this château is the symbol of aristocratic refinement in XVII and XVII century Provence.

CHÂTEAU DE SAINT MARTIN DE PALLIÈRES

The “Underground Cathedral »

The château was built on a rocky hill in the XII and XIII centuries. In the XVIII century a 20 acres park in the French style was created. In order to water the newly planted trees in the park and to supply enough water for an Italian style garden, an enormous water cistern was built. It could contain 28.000 hectolitres of water.

The 6 meters high vaults are supported by 20 pillars covering a 550 m2 area, which means visitors feel they are in an underground cathedral. In the XVIII century this was the largest cistern in Europe.
