6

Small village of Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, on the right bank of the Bléone, Aiglun takes place to ten kilometers of Digne-les-Bains, on Route Napoleon (N85). It is located between 507 and 900 meters above sea level, near Mirabeau and Barras, in natural settings on the border between Provence and the Alps.

Formerly dependent on oppidum Dignensis (Digne), Aiglun knows over the centuries a history linked to that of Provence, passing from independence to the kingdom of France. It was until the twentieth century a high place of wine culture, an activity that has now disappeared.

Very dynamic and member of the Geopark of Haute-Provence created by UNESCO in 2000, the city of Aiglun presents to its visitors an exceptional architectural heritage, as well as an authentic and preserved natural environment.

Things to see and do

Located at more than 600 meters of altitude, the chapel Saint-Jean was built between the 11th and the 12th century. It still reveals an altarpiece of the seventeenth century archaic style listed Historical Monuments. Today in ruins, the site is now accessible through many rural roads restoration campaigns. You can take the path of the Old Aiglun on the side of the town hall that will lead you to the highest point of the town, and the old village abandoned in the twentieth century.

Built in the 17th century in Villeneuve, Aiglun is a large house with turrets. It is home to the Clinique des Charmes since the 1930s. In the heart of the old center, it is also possible to see some small remains of the old castle, in the midst of the houses of the seventeenth century.

Do not miss to admire the 16th century Sainte-Marie-Madeleine church, which hosts several concerts in the year, or to visit the old Napoleon Road bridge.

Several hiking trails marked by the Geological Reserve of Haute Provence can appreciate all the tourist sites in the area.
