Annot spreads its houses at the foot of the natural site of sandstone and its cliffs. The cultivation terraces and shelters under rocks mixed with stone blocks invite you to take a walk. If you are a hiking or climbing enthusiast, your playground is at the end of the street. As for gourmets, our specialities will awaken your taste buds.
A medieval heart with a lacis of nicely paved alleys. And everywhere, the music of the water from the canals and fountains accompanies you. Old shops, engraved door lintels, corbelled houses, watchtowers and from time to time, a small square flooded with the sun or in the shade of the ramparts… Stroll in the ancient centre of this city of character with nonchalant elegance, it will reveal all its secrets.
The plates placed along the alleys tell you the history of the village. And for a fun visit with children, ask for the game booklet at the Tourist Office.
