General presentation

Between sea and mountains, at the sources of Paillons in the Alpes Maritimes, the town is home to the medieval village of Lucéram, perched on a rocky outcrop 25 km from Nice and 650 m above sea level, and the resort of Peïra-Cava, in 13 km from Lucéram and 1500 m above sea level.
A stopover village on the Salt Route, Lucéram preciously preserves the marks of its history and its rich cultural past.
Lucéram is an authentic medieval village, with:

  • The Tower surrounded by ramparts,
  • The Baroque Church of Sainte Marguerite, which has six altarpieces painted by BREA and CANAVESIO and a treasury of religious goldsmithery.
  • The chapels painted by BALEISON,
  • The Doors of the Medieval City,
  • The fountains and wash-houses,
  • The Museum of Old Tools and Local History,
  • The Nativity Scene Museum, unique in the region.

13 km. from Lucéram and at 1500 m. altitude, Peïra-Cava, a pleasant resort, welcomes in all seasons:

  • lovers of calm and healthy walks in the forest,
  • walks on skis and snowshoes in winter, on foot, horseback or mountain bike,
  • magnificent acrobatic course for all in the Adventure Park.
