The chateau is one of the places to see when visiting Gourdon in Provence. Between the 9th and 12 centuries it was a Saracen fortress, but during the 13th century it became a chateau. In 1610 it was entirely rebuilt by the Lombard family.The views from Gourdon in Provence, France are spectacular, one can see all the way to the Mediterranean coast and the Esterel Mountains and it is not hard to understand why Gourdon is also called the 'Eagles' Nest'.Village of Gourdon, Village Perche, on the a rocky cliff, Alpes Maritimes, Provence, France, Europe.
