An Historic Landmark
This prosperous and mostly agricultural area also has a rich architectural heritage that reflects its eventful history. Perched on top of a hill, the fortified town of Monflanquin was built in 1256 by Alphonse de Poitiers. Its fortifications, including eleven towers and gates, were dismantled in 1632 under the orders of Cardinal Richelieu. The town’s oval layout contrasts with the regularity of its streets, which are punctuated by narrow alleys and covered walkways and corridors between the houses.
The central square framed by arcades and the characteristic buildings, such as the Maison du Prince Noir or the Saint Andrée church, have made Monflanquin into one of France’s most beautiful villages (“Plus beaux villages de France” classification).
