Our hilltop villages Montclar-sur-Gervanne

Opening

All year round, daily.

Présentation

From the summit of the Montclar hill, one dominates all Gervanne. The castle has disappeared, but the Romanesque Saint-Marcel church of the 12th century is still there, in front of a breathtaking circular panorama taking place as far as the eye can see of the Vercors in the country of Bourdeaux.

The houses are lined up below, against the wall of the 14th enclosure, called "vingtain", the name of the tax which was used for its maintenance. It keeps one of its two doors, the Bayard door, at the main entrance of the town, and two round towers. A walkway was once around the mound. In the hamlet of Vaugelas, the small peasant church St Jacques and St Philippe, and its "campanile" housing a remarkable mechanical clock, are worth a visit.
