A Vaucluse Village
The exact origins of Villedieu are unclear as there is no written text (or at least none that has been found). However, like many Provencal villages, the theory is that the town began as a Gallo-Roman villa surrounded by agricultural lands. The fields would have required peasant workers, and such a hamlet likely developed with time.
What to see in Villedieu
Church: Built from the 10th to the 17th centuries, Saint Laurent and Saint Michel parish church, combines several architectural styles beginning in medieval times.
Watchtower: At 18.5m, this tower is not only tall, but it also has a substantial base. It is attached to the church.
The ramparts: Dating the exact construction of the ramparts is difficult, as they were built, rebuilt, and expanded several times from the 10th century forward.
