Camaret-sur-Aigues is a village set out in the shape of a circle, surrounded by fortified walls, with several gates allowing access to the village (in the Middle Ages the ramparts were further surrounded by a moat of three metres wide which was filled with water when the village was under attack). Close to both Orange and Carpentras, it has retained all the characteristics of a typical small Provençal community, with the old part of the village and its many historical monuments at its centre.
What to see, what to visit : the church of Saint-Andéol, the chapel of Saint-Andéol, the chapel of Notre Dame-d'Aubune (ninth and tenth century), the prehistoric caves of Ambrosi and Rocalinaud, the square tower (Tour Sarrasine), the Maison Bèque (the house of Joseph Esprit Lambert), a fresco by the artist Vincent Liévore on the church square, the remains of the feudal castle, the olive oil mill, the cellar offering a selection of Muscat wines.
