Gordes is a small town located picturesquely on the slopes of a limestone hill in Provence in the south of France. On the top of the hill there is a medieval castle reconstructed in the Renaissance style, and around it there are stone houses with gable roofs. Along the steep cobbled streets there are low walls used as fences. In the 1970s the castle in Gordes was bought and restored by Hungarian painter Victor Vasarely and almost until the end of the century it was the seat of the artist's foundation. Currently, there is an art museum and castle interiors are available to visitors.
