Locatie en vrije tijd
Situated a few kilometres from the listed village of Gorde in the Vaucluse, between Cavaillon, Carpentras and Apt, the village of Murs is perched as a sentinel on a promontory of the Vaucluse mountains in the northern part of the Luberon Regional Natural Park. An ancient village with stone houses rising up to the Romanesque church and the castle, in a setting of hills and forests, Murs dominates the immense landscapes stretching from the Pre-Alps to the Luberon. The first traces of habitation date back to the Palaeolithic! Today, the village has about 450 inhabitants.
Several hiking trails cross the commune (from a few hours to a day), allowing you to discover wonderful landscapes and sites. The mayor of the village is inexhaustible on the history of the commune and its monuments. He will also show you the Palaeolithic sites where many fossils have been discovered. Finally, you will have the opportunity to visit other nearby towns and villages (Gordes, Apt, Cavaillon).
