The Discoveryof the Entrevaux City
In front of you, two towers enclose the Royal Gate and its drawbridge over the Var.
One look over the parapet, you walk through the door and it’s gone. High houses, shops, narrow and dark alleys dotted with squares and fountains; here you are in the Middle Ages.
Remember to ask for the booklet games at the tourist information office for a fun heritage tour with children.
On the assault of the Entrevaux citadel
In the heart of this fortress perched 156 metres above the village, go back in time imagining life in its ancient dungeons and underground.
After a 30-minute ascent along the paved path designed by Vauban, the 360° panorama will reward your efforts.
Because of the height difference and the paved path, the climb to the citadel is not recommended for people with walking difficulties.
Take a bottle of water and good shoes.

Entrevaux has a rich olive-growing heritage.
Symbol of Provence, we find the olive tree at the gates of the Verdon near Entrevaux. Cultivated in terraces on the slopes of the city, the olive tree is an integral part of the village landscape. As in most of the Alpes de Haute-Provence, the variety found is the aglandau which gives a green fruity oil.
