Lourmarin is a commune in the Vaucluse department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region in southeastern France. Its inhabitants are called Lourmarinois.GeographyLourmarin is located in the French region of Provence, at the foot of the Luberon Massif where a southern pass debouches over the Luberon from Apt on the northern side of the Luberon. The pass divides the Grand Luberon from the Petit Luberon range, an area rich in Neolithic remains and noted for its dramatic massifs and rockscapes. The Aigues Brun brook comes out of the pass and runs just to the west of the village (Aigue is a Provençal language word for "water", coming from Latin aqua).HistoryLourmarin has been settled for at least a thousand years, and was probably a Neolithic campsite before that.A fortress was first built at the site in the 12th century, and was rebuilt by Foulques d'Agoult in the 15th century on the foundations of the earlier castle. It was restored in 1920.In 1545 the town was burned down because its population was predominantly Waldensian protestant.Its present mayor (2001-2008, 2008-2014) is Blaise Diagne, grandson of the like-named first Black African deputy and member of a French government. Lourmarin is in Luberon. Our France itinerary builder app allows you to schedule your trip to Lourmarin, learn about its attractions, and find out about where else to go during your holiday.
