Les Baux

Region: Provence - Bouches du Rhone
Monuments: The fortress citadel of Les Baux

Rising above the olive groves and vineyards in the foothills of the Alpilles mountains, Les Baux is probably the most spectacular fortress citadel in Provence.

Built by the Lords of Baux in the 10th century, it enjoys magnificent views across to the Camarque. Besides exploring the narrow streets, with its boutiques and gift shops, find time to visit the Museum of the History of the Citadel and the small Museum of Olive Oil which celebrates the local produce considered to be some of the finest in France.

Whilst Les Baux is famous for the quality of its olive oil, neighboring St Remy is better known for its herb shops and its Musee des Arome de Provence which displays implements relating to the herbal industry. Stop here for lunch and enjoy a truly typical Provence market town. Find time to visit the Centre d’Art Presence Van Gogh which celebrates the life and work of the impressionist painter who spent much of his time painting in the area.
