This fortified town built in 180BC by the Salyes, a tribe with a fairly evolved urban civilisation, was protected by a natural escarpment and by ramparts consisting of heavy curtain walls reinforced by towers. Inside the fort, the "upper town" was protected by another fortification, while the "lower town" seems to have been an artisanal district, where the remains of shops, warehouses and workshops can still be seen. Statuary from the site is exhibited in the Musée Granet.
