village de la Touche

The oldest part of the village dates back to the 12th century, when the area was called TOSCHIA  (coming from the word for wood). Its old washhouse still refreshes ramblers and cyclists after their efforts in this wooded provencal area of 500 hectares.If you hear the Angelus, it's chimed by the bell of the church of St John the Baptist and structures the passing of time and reminds you of by-gone wisdom «  lou tem passo, passo lou ben ».

Tucked away in the cemetery is Notre Dame de Maltaize, where a pilgrimage is held every year on September 8th to celebrate the birth of the Virgin.
