Walk around the exterior of Entrevaux
Walk around in all directions to take picture. You have a coffee in a cafe right next to the entrance of the village. Go also further to the opposite hillside and take pictures. You take both close up and far-distance photos.
ENTREVAUX Motor Cycle Museum
If you love motor cycles - or wish you did, then a trip to the 2 story motor cycle museum is a must. Entrance by donation, the small museum contains around 100 motor cycles from all eras of the machine - and they are all in working order too.
To find the museum, just follow the signs.

Built in the 1600's the entrance to the cathedral is guarded by 2 olive trees. Enter the door, turn left and activate the light switch. Within a few minutes the interior of the magnificent cathedral (small) is bathed in light.
The cathedral houses a large painting of the Assumption of the Virgin by Mimaust, from 1647, and has an organ by Jean Eustache dating to 1717.

Rooftiles in the traditional style
Of the many towns, cities and villages I can recall , the best sight is often the view from above of the jigsaw of terracotta rooftiles, a natural disorder of human endeavour and difference. While roofs cannot be seen from the ground, the character of a place often comes together in this helicopter view of the fiercely independent collage of shapes styles colours and angles.
Four hundred year old firepower - a reminder that for centuries war was the rule rather than the exception. Fortification, armies of conquest and ambition, villages put to the sword, the temporal power of the church, monarchy not democracy, old Europe - it is all written in the stones around you. Now its tourists and visitor centres with leaflets, but a little bit of the past is available to you in places like Entrevaux.
Narrow alleys ways
The village is a maze of narrow alleyways, and densely packed dwellings. From this stems the cohesion and community of village life. You can't ignore your neighbours. You live together.
