Stage town for the first time - 8,600 inhabitants(Tricastins)
Saint-Paul-Trois-Châteaux is a charming village inthe Drôme Provençale, which nestles among vine-yards, truffle oaks and fields of lavender, and man-ages to combine heritage, the land, authenticityand conviviality. Beneath it, the village’s former in-habitants have left behind a number of relics fromthe prehistoric age, from antiquity and the middleAges. The mediaeval cathedral, a remarkable ex-ample of Roman architecture, is emblematic of thetown, sitting majestically in the centre of the vil-lage. Inside the city walls, you will discover a hostof attractions: mansions, charming little squaresadorned with fountains and outdoor cafes. Saint-Paul-Trois-Châteaux is also a gastronomic delight,best known for its truffles, providing 60 per cent ofFrance’s truffles to the market, as well as its wine(AOC wines from Grignan-les-Adhémar) and itsmany great restaurants. The influence of the vil-lage also goes beyond its walls – it’s also known forits children’s book festival, its soul jazz festival, itsclassical music festival – Les Musicales en Tricastin– and a film festival.
