Comtat Venaissin is a very agricultural region famed in France for its fruits and olives, but is world reknown for its wines of course.

This bronze statue of Captain Louis des Balbes de Berton de Crillon, known as "Le Brave Crillon" (Crillon the brave), is in the middle of the village and honours it's most famous son. Although a subject of the pope he served under five different French kings.

The reader may find it amusing to learn that another Just Provence destination, Ménerbes, was besieged by le Brave Crillon in 1577, which shows how intense local history can be.

Although the locality was inhabited since the neolithic it is mainly during the wars of the 15th and 16th century that Crillon was disturbed from its tranquil agricultural life, caught in a struggle between the Pope and local lords.

At the end of the 19th century the village Council decided to honour their heroic lord, Louis de Balbe de Crillon, also known as "le brave des braves" (brave among the brave) by naming the village "Crillon le Brave".
