Ménerbes The Essential
Interesting
Ménerbes, proudly perched atop a rocky spur, is placed under the patronage of Minerva, goddess of wisdom and the arts. It's no wonder that writers and artists were drawn here, including Albert Camus who lived in Lourmarin and Picasso who stayed at the Dora Maar House in 1945. Head for the Maison de la truffe et des vins du Luberon on Place de l'Horloge to regale the senses, then past the (reconstructed) 13C citadel to explore the Jane-Eakin House where the American painter lived, and the Corkscrew Museum (Domaine de la Citadelle).
