From above, and in front of this admirable panorama, we would soon forget that we are in the 21st century! From the Roubion, the road climbs steeply to Poët-Célard. Up there on the esplanade, an imposing castle - 16th and 17th centuries - overlooks the village built in a semicircle on the southern slope.
