Aiglun

4.5
Aiglun is a French commune in the Alpes-Maritimes department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region of southeastern France.The inhabitants of the commune are known as Aiglenois or Aiglenoises.HistoryIn 1388 the village of Aiglun was under the protection of the House of Savoy like the rest of the region during the "Dédition of Nice to Savoy" from 1388.At the Treaty of Turin on 24 March 1760, the commune became French (the kingdom of France and that of Sardinia then proceeded to boundary adjustments and therefore there was an exchange of territories).ToponymyThe name of the town appears for the first time in texts around 1200 in the form Ayglezuni. This was derived from the Latin word Aquila, meaning "eagle", and the Gallic dunum, meaning "height" and signifies as a whole the "height of the eagle".AdministrationList of Successive Mayors of AiglunMayors from 1942(Not all data is known)DemographyIn 2009 the commune had 91 inhabitants. The evolution of the number of inhabitants is known through the population censuses conducted in the town since 1793. From the 21st century, a census of municipalities with fewer than 10,000 inhabitants is held every five years, unlike larger towns that have a sample survey every year.Sites and MonumentsThe village is known for its steep climbing walls over 200 metres high with high difficulty routes. The Aiglun canyon is also popular for canyoning enthusiasts.
