Vitrolles-en-Lubéron

Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Vaucluse

The existence of a village location to Vitrolles-en-Lubéron is attested from ancient times. It was located on the communication channel connecting the Pays d'Aigues and the Durance valley to Céreste. The Castellas, rock overlooking the village to the west, has probably served to oppidum Gallo-Roman. A "Castrum" existed in the 11th century.

Abandoned during the 15th century, the village relives through the Housing Act of March 1503 granted by the Earl of Gaucher Brancas, lord of Vitrolles to 9 families, allowing them to resettle in Vitrolles.

Village of farmers living modestly in a territory difficult Vitrolles lived all the vicissitudes of history by being spared the destruction.

To avoid confusion with his namesake of the Bouches-du-Rhone, the town took the name of Vitrolles-en-Lubéron since 1996, having been called Aigues Vitrolles of the 18th century.
