Joucas is a small terraced village built on a hill opposite the ochre of Roussillon. You can appreciate the beautiful countryside in this peaceful village, largely undiscovered by tourists, unlike the other better known villages in the Luberon.
Joucas has plenty of picturesque narrow streets, paved with ancient stones. The 18th century church is worth a look – it is unspectacular from the outside, but contains a treasure trove of Italian trompe l’oeil artwork. Also of interest are the unusual wooden sculptures dotted around the village and the atelier where they are created is hidden in one of the tiny streets!
