ARLES A very interesting town surrounded by walls (like Avignon) where several sights should be visited as the Amphitheatre, the Cryptoportiques (entrance through the Museum of Pagan Art), St Trophime’s Cathedral, Flat Vaulting of the Town Hall, Roman Theatre, Arlaten Museum and Van Gogh museum.

Castle of Baux de Provence
LES-BAUX-DE-PROVENCE Built on a rocky outcrop, the Citadel of Les Baux de Provence offers you incomparable panoramic views over the Alpilles mountain range, the plain of Crau swept by the Mistral wind and the Camargue. The twenty or so residents who live within its walls jealously protect a patiently restored and unparalleled heritage. With the château of Les Baux and the Carrières de Lumières, this veritable open-air museum is a not-to-be-missed stop in Provence for the more than one million visitors who come here each year. The Saint-Vincent Church, the Post Tenebras Lux window, the Maison du Roy, the White Penitents' chapel, the Hôtel de Manville, the Château.... 22 monuments testifying to a prestigious and tumultuous past have been listed with the historic preservation society. Architectural masterpieces can be seen and admired at every corner of the cobblestone lanes that criss-cross the old village. Art galleries, and crafts workshops, boutiques and museums, gourmet restaurants and 4-star hotels invite you for a longer stay in this exceptional setting. ST. RÉMY-DE-PROVENCE In the majestic setting of the Alpilles, between Avignon and Arles, nestles a gem of a city: Saint-Rémy de Provence. Private mansions from the Renaissance and the 18th century, beautifully restored homes, chapels and convents line the winding streets of the historic centre. Shaded boulevards, squares adorned with old fountains and the terraces of the cafés and restaurants are all invitations to enjoy the Provençal way of life. Its beautiful heritage is crowned by the archaeological site of Glanum and the ancient monuments, such as the Triumphal Arch and the Jules Mausoleum, exceptional legacies of Late Antiquity. The town, which witnessed the birth of Nostradamus, was and still is a source of inspiration for many artists. Seduced by the setting and the town's atmosphere, many have chosen to live here and numerous studios and art galleries thrive in the town centre.
