As is historical and logical, the buildings of Lurs and other villages are made from materials readily available. These buildings are made from riverstones from the mighty Durance River in the valley.
The road up to Lurs is a small onelane road which winds up the side of the hill. Go slow and take care, you may meet the lady tending her goats on the side of the raod.
Take time to view the statue at the entrance of Le Séminaire at the village. Even in bad weather she emits a very moving atmosphere and is very empowering.
A reminder of days gone bye when this was a Seminary.
Favorite thing: Lurs has a very commanding view over the Durance Valley. This is a valley is a favourite part of Provence for me and the views are wonderful. Think about Napoleon and his travels through this area so many years ago. These villages are strategically placed on the top of these small hills and when there looking out, you can get a feel why they were placed where they were.
