Incredible views of the Citadelle and Art in Forcalquier
This morning I hopped in the car and headed across to Forcalquier, a short distance from us in the neighbouring Department of Alpes-De-Haute-Provence. Monday is its market day and provides the perfect excuse for a visit (if such a thing is needed?). It is a lovely drive along the northern flank of the Luberon before the views open out to the Valensole Plateau and the Southern Alps.
Continue reading here to enjoy Julie’s photos of the market produce and Forcalquier’s old town, including the Citadelle. Learn about the town’s history and art scene at Ateliers D’Art.
In 2014, a small group of artists created the Association Ateliers Forcalquier. Primarily located in the historic centre, rue Marius Debout, they decided to group their efforts, thus creating a dynamic community and giving visibility to their work. For decades, the creative arts (art, craft, music, theatre) have been integral to the Forcalquier scene. Association Ateliers Forcalquier organises the festival. Its sixty-some members work in diverse mediums – clay, glass, wood, paper, paints, textiles, photography and more.
