Like Roussillon, Gargas is in an ochre rich area of the Luberon.
The ochre mines of Bruoux (one of the hamlets of Gargas) were the main activity of the area and you can find their colours on many houses in the Luberon. The mines are now partly a museum, but also play hosts to various festivals and shows during the summer.
Gargas is a small Provençal village in the heart of the Luberon. It dates back to the 11th century and humans were present in the area since the Paleolithic. But the village and castle were destroyed during the religion wars of the 16th century. Nowadays Gargas designates a group of small hamelets in the Luberon valley.
Ithas one claim as the birthplace of general Jean-Baptiste d'Anselme (1740-1814) who accompanied Lafayette during the American Revolution and later became a French revolutionary general.
