Geocache Description:


Bâtisse fortifiée dont il ne reste que la base imposante et le mur d’enceinte datant à priori du XVIe. L’histoire dit que le Vicomte de Barras en ordonna la destruction en 1793, mais Louis Molinard de Cotignac à qui fut confié le travail s’essouffla avant la fin, laissant ainsi debout la base et la muraille la plus épaisse. Aujourd’hui, ce site exceptionnel accueille pendant la belle saison les différents spectacles et autres festivités, tenant désormais le rôle officiel de théâtre de verdure pour Fox Amphoux.


Only the imposing basis of the fortifications and the outer wall dating from the sixteenth century still exists. The story goes that the Vicomte de Barras ordered the destruction in 1793, but Louis Molinard de Cotignac to whom the work was entrusted died before finishing, leaving the basis and the thicker wall for the future. Today, this exceptional site welcomes summer shows and various other festivities and has now the role of official outdoor theater at Fox Amphoux.
