"Vernègues is a village posed in the medium of a beautiful campaign where alternate small slopes of vines, restanques of olive-trees, orchards and cultivated fields of corn. The village of origin of Vernègues (today the Old Vernègues) was destroyed on June 11, 1909 by a terrible earthquake. While arriving at the village, you will see the ruins of the Old Vernègues immediately to take shape with far on the hill. you go will find there the vestiges of the castle, the houses and the church. Arrived on the papered plate of thyme, wild flowers and swept by the winds the days of Mistral, you will have the breath cut by the panorama which will be offered to you. Vernègue has the chance to have on its territory a rich person inheritance: - In the South in a wood of oak, you will discover very beautiful vestiges of the 1° century of our era of a city destroyed at the end of Antiquity. Follow D22 from Cazan to the Field of Low Castle, in the south of which the broken columns of a small Roman temple are drawn up. Leaned with the temple, you will find the Vault Césaire Saint there. You will see there a circular semi enclosure, bases, a buttressed wall and column of the purest Corinthian style. - In the North of its territory, you will discover in Vernègues a necropolis of the VIII° century, a mill with oil, polishing machines and a Gallo-Roman oppidum. All around Vernègues a very beautiful nature promises the superb ones to you stroll, let be guided by subtle the perfumes of the wild aromatic plants which border the paths."
