Strategically overlooking the gorge of Donzere, the village of Viviers has retained its old world charm. Founded in the 5th century, Viviers was developed around its Romanesque cathedral, whose façade, porch and solitary tower still survive today. Our guided tour in Viviers will start in the Old Town, which reveals an interesting combination of roman, Christian, and medieval influences. We also stop by Rue du Chateau and Maison Élémentaire du Commerçant.
