A Drôme Provençale village, dominated by the rocks of La Tour and Le Crapon, it is the chef-lieu of the canton, separated in two by the river Méouge. Séderon is located at the entrance to a natural basin enclosed by high cliffs. It is thought that the original settlement was located on the highest rock dominating it, but the actual village was founded by the Mévouillon barons, from whom the 'Baronnies' gets its name. Surrounded by huge expanses of lavender fields, which give the whole area a fabulous blue hue when the plants flower, Séderon is a true paradise for walkers.
What to see, what to visit: the chapel Notre-Dame-de-la-Brune; the
nineteenth century church, with its gilded copper processional cross; its fountain.
Recommended activities: walks, horse riding. There is a paragliding school in the vicinity.
