Lucéram, high medieval village

Between the sea and the mountains, at the source of the Paillons river, the town is home to the medieval village of Lucéram, perched on a rocky spur, and the high altitude resort of Peïra Cava, the first winter sports resort in the department, created on the initiative of Victor de Cessole, in 1909.
Lucéram is a stopover village on the salt road and is also a stopover on the Baroque road in the Nice region.
The old village of Lucéram, which was prosperous from the end of the 15th century, is renowned for its historical and cultural heritage, its religious and medieval monuments as well as the retables of Ludovico Bréa, but also its museums, the museum of old tools and local history, the oil mill and the crib, the crib circuit...
We cannot forget the Tower "open to the throat", surrounded by ramparts as well as the baroque church of Sainte Marguerite, its altarpieces and its Treasury.
Lucéram is also famous for its numerous alleys, some would say a labyrinth of stepped alleys, adorned with superb facades, old arched doors, geminated windows, its fountains and its wash houses...
Not forgetting the Placette, the heart of the old medieval town where all the streets converge.
The olive tree, still cultivated, has a privileged place in the landscape and in the life of the inhabitants.
