The buildings and streets are very old.

Take time to look around the streets and buildings. So much history, so many stories embedded in these corners. The plaque reads:
TO THE MEMORY OF ELEANOR DE PROUVENçO FOURCAUQUIE
THE WIFE OF HENRY THE THIRD KING OF ENGLAND.

A Charming Town with a Long History

"Weekly Market and a Nice Hike"

Forqaulcier has a great weekly market on Monday mornings that is large and very authentic. Not as "glam" as the Lourmarin market, this one nevertheless has a broader focus on foods and real daily neccessities -- all of which are beautifully displayed for the customer or visitor with a camera! Also, there is a pretty hike to the top of the town, where hikers are rewarded with a beautiful 360-degree view of the surrounding countryside, as well as a charming old Citadel and chapel.

Lovely little old place!

"Once the capital of Provence!"

Forcalquier, in the upper part of Provence, has been the capital of that region for a while. Still, it keeps the momumental style in some of its historical buildings.
But, though the architectural side is worth the visit, the real richness - I believe - is in the countryside: so peaceful and interesting landscapes. It's nit a surprise this is one of the places well-off North-Europeans choose for their retirement!

Forcalquier - a very interesting old town.

by kiwi

Situated in Provence, this small town of 4375 inhabitants, offers plenty of photographic opportunities and is abound with history.
Travelling south from Gap to Marseille on the Autoroute, take the La Brillanne exit and head west on the N100 or alternatively the D12.

Enlarge this photo and view the detail on the fountain, to the left of the animal heads.
You will see two figures in the '69' position.

Visit the weekly market, it is very well known and wonderful stalls to shop at.
