The village, that grew up around the church, was once encircled by ramparts. Discover the ancient Porte de Besse (a classified historical monument), the grain measures, the Tour de la Potence and more.
The etymology of the word "Chalencon" comes from a Celtic-Ligurian root "Kal" signifying rocky mass and "Anco" designating the shape of a hillock.
Guided visits on Tuesdays at 10am in July and August.
