The town has a wonderful central square and the many old trees give Castellane a real sense of character. High on top of the rock, you’ll find a chapel which takes about 30 minutes to walk to. The rock itself was used as a fortified position and was unconquerable by invaders due to its height and the fact it was surrounded by fences.

A trip to the top is well worth the effort and the photos you can take once there will make your holiday unforgettable.
