The castle of Lourmarin was classified as a historical monument in 1973. Discover the history of this castle and its owner, the curse and all the anecdotes of this monument.
The oldest body of the castle of Lourmarin was built in the 15th century by Foulques d'Agoult. From 1526, Louis d'Agoult-Montaubaun and his wife, Blanche de Lévis-Ventadour, raised the Renaissance wing with remarkable unity and purity of style.
After the revolution, the castle had several proporiarians who were not interested in it. He narrowly escaped complete destruction thanks to Laurent-Vibert.
Passing to Lourmarin in 1920, this scholar, heir to the company, was seduced by the charm of the castle, bought it and restored it.
Upon his death in 1925, Robert Laurent-Vibert bequeathed the castle by will to the Academie des Sciences, Agriculture, Arts et Belles Lettres d'Aix, to become an artists' residence.
