The Ubaye valley

Barcelonnette , a small mountain town, is the capital of the Ubaye Valley and bears the marks of a distant past: before 1713, the Ubaye, was a border valley and retains the influence of the states of Savoy Provence and Piedmont . The city organizes guided tours… paying and free !

The Barcelonnette villas

The villas of Barcelonnette“, opulent houses built by old families who returned from Mexico with a certain fortune, are a testament to a near past.
