Château des Hospitaliers

Dominating the village of Poet Laval, the former commandery of St John of Jerusalem, subsequently the Knights of Malta, is the finest ruin of its kind in Provence. Note the 12th century keep, topped by an outstanding dovecote.

Come and visit this 12th century castle (order of St John of Jerusalem) modified during the 13th and 15th centuries. The pigeon house cresting the keep would have been built in the 15th century. It was, as people say, "Provence's most beautiful pigeon house".
