Architectural heritage

The Var hinterland also allows you to discover the architectural treasures.


The hilltop villages of the Pays de Fayence are the historical witnesses of life in Provence.

Take time to visit Montauroux and its famous chapel Saint Barthélémy, (bequeathed by Christian Dior to Montauroux village) and its alleys.

Then drive to Tourrettes with its many craft shops. Climb up to Mons to discover this cliffside village. Finally, have a look at Callian and its castle, Fayence and its alleys and its market. These are pleasant discoveries to be made at your own pace.

Amateur of religious buildings? Abbey of Thoronet, Chartreuse of the Verne, Basilica of Saint Maximin, Cathedral Saint-Léonce of Fréjus are the unmissable monuments. Unless you prefer the small churches of the villages of the hinterland of the Var.

You will go from discoveries in wonderment by visiting the numerous buildings classified historical or remarkable monuments.
