Situated at the foothills of the Cheiron mountain range, Coursegoules is a village with narrow streets and staircases, porches and vaults all in beautiful architectural unity. Most of its houses date from between the twelfth and the seventeenth century, built in local stone and topped with round tiles. While it was once a fortified town, Coursegoules still retains some vestiges of this period: a Romanesque church here is listed in the inventory of historic buildings, a mill within the village walls was originally built by the Templars. Marked paths follow the trail of the ancient Roman road, to the preserved site of the hamlet of St. Barnabas. Climbing to the peak of Jerusalem on the Cheiron, travellers can stop off at the Saint-Michel chapel (fourth and twelfth century), listed as a historical monument, and see the terraces where roses for the famous Grasse perfumeries are cultivated, and where the wheat the area is known for is grown.
