Located at the doors of the provençal Baronnies, the site of Arzeliers opens onto a small mountain where one can enjoy a wonderful view of the Durance Valley. This old village in ruins, is the birthplace of the Laragne community, where one can still find the remains of a chapel and houses. After many years, the community of Laragne has mobilized itself to revive, maintain, and enhance the remains of the castle of Arzeliers, which is a witness to the rich past of its districts. Since 2013, three international workcamps of young volunteers were organized by the associations of « Les Villages des Jeunes » and « Les amis de l’abbaye de Clausonne » to carry out the community’s goals. Strengthened by its past achievements, the association has offered to oversee the safeguarding work in 2019.
