The old town

When you walk the streets of Saint-Saturnin-les-Apt look out for a number of strikingly beautiful doors and ornately carved doorways, especially along rue de la Republique in the centre.

Castles

This is one of the least present chateaux in the region, just a few bits of wall and outlines of the fortifications remain, but the ridge they are laid out on offers wonderful views of the Luberon, and is topped by an 11th century chapel that did survive.
