Hilltop and medieval Villages

With their narrow facades often huddled around a church, a castle, a tower, many hilltop villages, steeped in history, dominate our valleys. In the Middle Ages this location in height often surrounded by an enclosure or fortifications allowed tnot only to protect the village, but also to see very far! Upaix, Ventavon, Mison, Sigoyer, Valavoire are the most representative but we can also mention Saléon, Le Poët, Antonaves or La Bâtie Montsaléon. From the medieval tower of Upaix, an orientation table will guide your sight to a 360 ° panorama... a nice way to spot all these small hilltop villages along our valleys!
