Château des Baux-de-Provence

Recommended
The vestiges of the Château des Baux, demolished in 1632 by order of Richelieu, include the ruins of the citadel, towers, the castle chapel (12C-16C) and the keep, with a splendid panorama. You enter via a space that uses models to retrace the site's glorious past. Its other points of interest are a monument dedicated to the poet Charloun Rieu, Quiqueran Hospital (16C) and the Chapelle St Blaise. Events are hosted here, most notably the Médiévales des Baux, from mid-April to late August.
