Cruzy

It is pleasant to walk round the picturesque streets of this old fortified village which is full of historical curiosities. 

The main attraction of the village is the church of Saint Eulalie, built over a period from 12th to 15th Centuries. One’s attention is drawn by the fortified aspect of this building with its square tower, its crenellated watchtowers and machicolated entrance. The interior is very representative of Southern Gothic style, with a single nave and a seven faceted choir.

In Cruzy’s museum there is a display of artifacts unearthed in the surrounding countryside; digs have revealed extensive paleontological fields with dinosaur skeletons as well as numerous archaeological relics, Gallo-Roman villas and necropolises. There is also an exhibition of pottery and banners from the vineyard workers’ rebellion in 1907.
