Callian is an old ‘perched town’ situated next to Montauroux and not far from Fayence.
A little history. The Celtic-Ligurian tribes, Ligauni had settled on the slopes of Cavaroux, currently on the town of Tourrettes. These first Callianais occupied the hills and the plains to the Siagne border river. Decimated by the Romans around 155 BC, some of the inhabitants would build a new town on the banks of the Camiole on the current territory of the municipality of Callian.
Today Callian is a small village with a handful of restaurants, bakeries and a general purpose store. The shaded square in front of the church is a popular place to have a drink or a meal.
