Fort de Buoux

View of the cliffs of the Aigue Brun valleySolar Tour 2008 – Day 10: Leaving Montfuron and its old mill behind us, we were soon on the D900 again, going west towards Apt. While Apt is certainly worth being visited, we didn’t feel like doing a city tour and instead visited the ruins of Fort de Buoux, 10 km south of Apt.
Fort de Buoux was built on the edge of the canyon of the Aigue Brun valley in the 12th century. Next to the ruins of the fort, there are also remains of an older abandoned hilltop village and one has a great view of the canyon, which is very popular with climbers.
