Le Puy-Sainte-Réparade or Le Puy is a commune in the Bouches-du-Rhône department in southern France.GeographyLe Puy-Sainte-Réparade is located 15km North of Aix-en-Provence via the N96 and then the D561.It is located between the ridges of the Trévaresse and the River Durance which marks the natural boundary between the Vaucluse and Bouches-du-Rhône départements. Opposite Le Puy, on the other bank of the river, is Pertuis in the South Luberon.The village is surrounded by vine fields and agricultural land, with arable crops on the plain and the vines on the hills. There is a beautiful walk up to the Sainte Réparade chapel and, on arrival at the summit, there are panoramic views over the Durance plain, the Luberon and the Alpilles hills.The nearby 450m hill La Quille or La Quiho, "the keel", has the ruins of the 8th-century fortress, destroyed in the 17th century.HistoryCarved stones show that Le Puy was settled in prehistoric times. The Celto Ligures Salluviens left traces during the Iron Age and there was subsequent settlement by the Romans.In the 11th century, the Archbishops of Aix who were lords of Puy built a fortified château and acquired neighbouring lands.In 1155, Pons de Lubières bought his Puy estates from Hugues d'Eguilles.
