The Cellars of the Saint Firmin Palace

Semi-troglodyte site built by man and dug into the rock, a witness to the craft activities of the village in the Middle Ages (olive oil mill, silos, vats...).


Caves St Firmin - Gordes

Visit 3 levels of cellars, once used for crafts. Dug in the rock, under the houses, following the slope of the village, discover the underground life under the city, so little known yet!

Caves St Firmin - Gordes

Citadel villages" like Gordes are a real challenge to nature. Indeed, to cope with the lack of space on the ground, the houses within the city walls were crammed together and an underground life was established. While people lived above ground, industry and crafts developed underground. In Gordes there is a gigantic underground network that is often more impressive than the houses that house it. At present, this backstage area, buried under the embankments, is not visible. Well, almost, because after more than forty years of clearing work, tourists can now discover part of this underground world.

Documentary on the restoration of the Caves, 3D video (representation of the craft activity that existed in the Caves) and a small museum with objects testifying to the different uses of the Caves found during their restoration.
