Azille was very important during the middle ages. Built on a circular plan strengthened by remparts, doors and towers… The Saint-Julien church dates from the 14th century, it has a unique nave, a bell tower of 36 meters high with a spectacular view on the plain and the black mountain.Inside, we can see a virgin and child that is one of the most beautiful gothic sculptures of southern France. At the end of the 19th century, the arrival of the railroad allowed the trades to increase and the construction of beautiful bourgeois houses such as the “Gallimard” castle where the musician Cesar Franck lived and composed “Les Eolides”. The “tour de ville” has secular plane trees that invite to lay back… and at the foot of the village, there are vineyards and olive groves…
