In the framework of the International Workshop on Paleoseismology, Active Tectonics, and Archaeoseismology, the members of the Organizing Committee have proposed a field trip to Rognes as one of the most damaged villages by the 1909 earthquake. This field trip and the guidebook has been prepared based on a field survey carried out by Georgia Poursoulis, Arnaud Montabert, Magali Rizza, and Stéphane Baize from June 23 to June 25, 2022. This preliminary field trip made it possible to contact local associations that provided key information for the creation of this trip. We want to thank "Les Amis du Patrimoine de Rognes" and tourism offices, "Maison du Tourisme de Lambesc," "Maison du Tourisme de Rognes," and "Maison du Tourisme de Saint-Cannat."

Through the case of Rognes, this document proposes a synthesis of the 1909 earthquake from the bibliography and the field campaign.
