L 'enceinte de la Cuve

L'enceinte de la Cuve is a circular mound with a 54 meter internal diameter, surrounded by a broad and deep ditch.

One can only speculate as to its actual original purpose. Some ascribe to a semi-industrial site due to traces of clinker found, whilst others propose its military use due to it's strategic position on the western slope of Mount Bel-Air.

It's construction seems to date from antiquity, since the site was occupied in the Gallo-Roman period.

Nevertheless, the real story of the site remains a mystery to this day.
