The Hilly


Surrounded by hills, the Provencal landscape of this village has kept its authenticity and always delights hiking lovers.

Peypin comes from the Provencal “Pey” which means hill, headland.
The village has many old names: Castrum de Podio Pino, Pueypin, Podium Pine, Podium Pinum, Peypin, Peypin de Marseillo and Peypin-lez-Auriol.

In the 12th century, Pierre Bremond, lord of Auriol, built the castle of Peypin.


Besides the remains of the castle, there is the monument dedicated to the Resistance fighters, the “Maquisards”, named “Lei Loups Roudaïres “, and numerous testimonies of the territory’s mining past.
