Luceram

Lucéram is a commune in the Alpes-Maritimes department in southeastern France. Lucéram is in the region Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur. Its inhabitants are called the Lucéramois.Luceram village is home of Peïra-Cava, the first station of winter sports department created in 1909. The village has many ecclesiastical and medieval monuments and altarpieces of Ludovico Brea.GeographyThe town is built on a rocky outcrop overlooking the Foil. In the lower valley, there is an intersection of the salt road that leads from the port of Nice in Savoy, through the valley of Vésubie. The village lies at 650 meters altitude, and 27 kilometers from Nice by D 2566.ToponymyThe origin of the name "Lucéram" is uncertain.Lucéram is originally the name Lucerius or Lucerus. Lucerius was a Benedictine monk. The name is a derivative of a Luceranus that appears in text in 1057, and may have given the village its name. The Latin phrase Lux eram ("I was light") could also be the origin of the name. Durante gives another expression, Lucus eram ("I was a sacred grove"), which appears to refer to the ancient worship of the forest that surrounds the village. This etymology is questionable when it is compared with its Latin name Pagus Liccirum. Louis Durante also indicates that the village was built on a fully wooded eminence. In ancient texts there are also the names Lucis-ramus and Luciramus. Luceram was the capital of the tribe of Lepontii quoted on listing Trophée des Alpes.
