Overview
Les Baux de Provence clings precariously to an ancient rocky cliff. A fortified hilltop village one of the most visited in Provence & easy to understand its popularity, narrow cobbled streets, ancient houses run up to a ruined castle. Where the Baux family ruled from the 9th century 'til 1426 when it was integrated into Provence, subsequently became part of France in 1481. Later the people revolted against integration & Louis XI responded by dismantling the château. Our visit explores the village & château. Next to Carrières de Lumières, one time 19th century quarry Les Grand Fonds. In 2019 it exhibits works of Vincent Van Gogh spanning 7,000 m² of the Carrières. A visual & musical production retracing the intense life of the artist, who in the last years of his life, painted more than 2,000 works. Next visit nearby Saint Rémy de Provence. Village, surrounded by lush valleys, ancient streets lined with old houses and built on one of the oldest archeological sites in Europe.
