This village, situated at the foot of a hill, is typically Provençal. The beautiful houses in the alleys are decorated with climbing roses. In the month of June, in full bloom, the colors are magnificent. From the Séguret square, one can notice the peaks of the lace of Montmirail located opposite. A little path in the village leads to the ruins of the castle.
Placed above the side of the hill, dominated by the tower of the medieval castle, the Cevennes horizon at sunset, the village of Séguret is, well planted, dominates the vine-covered plain.
Inhabited since prehistoric times, the Séguret site is part of Voconce land widely marked in Gallo-Roman times. Then the village was built during the Middle Ages Summit (tenth twelfth century), has a history closely linked to that of Venaissin County, Ecclesiastical State until the Revolution.
It is now under the rule of the Pope, sometimes as Count of Toulouse, who owned the vineyards in the twelfth century. Séguret was confirmed to France with the department of Vaucluse in 1793.
The medieval character of Séguret, with its cobbled streets, charms the visitor who admires the pages of history evoked at every step.
From the vantage point, a wide view is offered to visitors.
The less enthusiastic tourist can walk along a path to the ruins of the castle, where one discovers an extraordinary panorama.
