Village de Châteauredon

At the edge of the Route Napoléon (RN85), on the side of a hill, Châteauredon owes its name to the old round castle which has now disappeared.
Another castle was erected more recently (around 1800) in the center of the village. At its foot, a beautiful private fountain has just been restored.

In Châteauredon, a church is dedicated to Saint Maxime and among no less than three chapels, one of them has become an emblematic place, very popular with hikers...

The chapel of Saint Michel du Cousson, at an altitude of 1.516 meters on the famous Cousson mountain, is indeed located in the commune of Châteauredon. It is accessible by several hiking trails from Beynes, Digne les Bains or Entrages.

It is also possible to reach it from the car park near the Châteauredon service station. This path with a significant difference in altitude allows you to pass near the ancient hamlets of Baties, Granges and the monastery of Suye and offers a very beautiful view of the Asse Valley.
