In the heart of the old hillside town of Aubenas stands Montlaur Castle, a gem of Ardèche civil architecture. Listed as an Historic Monument, the castle was inhabited from the 12th century up to the Revolution by six successive seigniorial families. Covered by varnished tiles, flanked by a keep with watchtowers and two round pepperpot towers, mullioned windows, and a Renaissance courtyard, Aubenas Castle is also special in that it houses a wide collection of paintings, sculptures and etchings.

Opposite the castle stands Delichères House. Gothic in style, this great 15th century dwelling is decorated with gargoyles. The town's heritage also includes Saint-Benoît Dôme, the old chapel of a Benedictine convent in the 17th and 18th centuries. Today it houses religious art objects and the marble mausoleum of the Marshal and Marshaless of Ornano.

Then head for the belvedere and orientation table on the Place de l'Airette, which gives you a great panoramic view of the Ardèche Valley!

Every Saturday morning on the Place du Château, there is a local produce market, full of colours and flavours.
