"Forcalquier - a very interesting old town." Forcalquier by kiwi

Forcalquier Travel Guide: 3 reviews and 10 photos

Situated in Provence, this small town of 4375 inhabitants, offers plenty of photographic opportunities and is abound with history.
Travelling south from Gap to Marseille on the Autoroute, take the La Brillanne exit and head west on the N100 or alternatively the D12.

Enlarge this photo and view the detail on the fountain, to the left of the animal heads.
You will see two figures in the '69' position.
1511 Gothic La Fontaine Saint-Michel

Visit the weekly market, it is very well known and wonderful stalls to shop at.

    I love these little historic French towns with their street markets as well. Whatever you buy just seems so much nicer when you've got it from surroundings which ooze character!
