Tourrettes, a historical village

The village has many historical and prehistoric sites and remains that testify to the village's existence. A viewpoint indicator will allow you to admire the view as well as the Château du Puy, a replica of the St-Petersboug Naval Cadet Corps. The incredible labyrinth of alleys, still resounding from the steps of the mules, the rustic porches, the old stones full of history and legends represents a wonderful and magical world, a festival of colours and scents.

Tourrettes, cradle of great minds

Tourrettes was the birthplace of two great men:
Jacques-Alexandre Fabre (1782-1844), a famous polytechnician, "lent" by Napoleon I to the Russian tsar to build large road structures that testify to French know-how in bridges and pavements.
Joseph Marius Alexis Aubin (1802-1891), a renowned Americanist who devoted himself to deciphering the figurative writing of the ancient Mexicans. 

The village is also proud of the worldwide prestige of the International Gliding Centre in Fayence - Tourrettes, the first in Europe, which allows enthusiasts of this sport to fly all year round in French Riviera and in the most favourable weather conditions.
