Rochemaure "village character"

 
Rochemaure, small médieval village with a lot of hisotry, goes from 66m high at the bottom of the village to 707m high at the top of the Fau mountain. With 1914 inhabitants, the «Rupismauriens» (people of Rochemaure), it is situated in the heart of the Rhone valley, 150km at the south of Lyon and 5 km at the West of Montelimar. Next to the Drôme, Rochemaure is at the bottom of the Coiron mountains and of an ancient volcano : the Chenavari.
It's one of the villages of Ardèche which kept the most traces of the past. It has an important historic heritage : a XIIth century castle, a XIIIth century chapel « Notre Dames des Anges », a church and a suspension bridge from the XIXth century.
The castle, property of the town since 1974, was built in several parts. The ramparts, which ole village were built at the XIIIth century, with two towers : « Guast tower » and « la Bise ».
The suspension bidge of Rochemaure, today in the historic monuments inventory, was built in 1824. Closed to the public in 1982, it is nowadays unfortunately abandonned.
The Black Rock of Rochemaure overlooks the village. This dike is situated a few step away from the castle's ramparts.There is a water source which gives drinking water, which was marketed before ; it is today at the population disposal for free. Some say it has sometherapeutic virtues.
