The foundations of the castle of Mauras rest on the remains of a Roman villa. Around the 11th century, Count Cheglus' family from Italy built the oldest elements of the castle. In the Middle Ages, Mauras became a castle with battlements and machicolations. He knew then the splendors of the Renaissance. Defensive elements have been removed, elegant mullioned windows and large, pale stone stairs have been created. Under Louis XIII, Mauras knew the miseries of the wars against the Huguenots. Mauras also passed through the crises of the French Revolution in 1789 and those of the war of 1940. With its four towering towers, the castle is now serene, and lets admire its architecture of the classic style of Provence. It is a peaceful place conducive to relaxation and conviviality in the countryside.
