The remains of a bronze age village

featured in Sights & sites

Just outside the village of Gordes lies the archaeological remains of a Bronze age village. The Village des Bories dates back to around 2000BC. You can still see ancient sheep pens, stone beehive houses (bories) and bread ovens.

The village has been pillaged in the past but is now protected (Historic Monument) and operates as a museum. It's open every day from 9.00am until sunset. A shuttle bus runs from Gordes (1.7km away) free of charge for senior citizens (but does not run on Saturday afternoons, Sundays or public holidays).
