Eyragues

... in the heart of Provence

If you want to experience Provence, between the Alpilles and the Durance, stop off in Eyragues and share in one of the many festivals which take place there. When you enter this stylish village, you will see its splendid 18th century clock tower and the fortified, Romanesque-style Saint Maxime church dating from the 11th and 12th centuries. Along the lanes, you will see the remains of the ramparts. Another point of interest is the magnificent Romanesque Saint Bonet chapel, built in the 11th century, with its garden full of Late Period tombs. Once you have visited the village, take the 'transhumance trail', a 12 km hiking trail which allows you to enjoy magnificent landscapes and beautiful views over the Alpilles. Finally, to make the most of the charm of Eyragues,visit its authentic Provençal market (Friday mornings) or take part in one of the many Provençal events and festivals which bring the whole village together.

    This was originally known as the Chapelle des Pucelles or the Chapelle des Vierges. This chapel has, of course, paid the traditional homage to time and undergone a series of transformations which have made it even more interesting. Don't miss the relatively rudimentary bas-relief tympanum representing the theme of Adam and Eve, the serpent and the tree of life. Remarkably, the tree of life is represented by a fig tree.

    The Croix Roumieu is a veritable monument commemorating the journey of a parishioner who brought the relic of Saint Symphorian back from Rome in 1610. The Provençal word 'Roumieu' means pilgrim, hence its name. There are a total of 13 crosses in the commune of Eyragues, in addition to the Croix Roumieu.

    Don't miss St Maxime Church with its 11th or 12th century Provençal Romanesque nave, its apse and Gothic-style northern side-aisle, as well as the two Romanesque chapels which form a pseudo-transept. The origin of the Chapel of Christ (a regional Historic Monument) is controversial; some authors believe it to be Paleo-Christian. It received the 'Ruban du Patrimoine' award in 2003.
