We really enjoyed our visit. Get the free audio guide to appreciate your visit even more. Dont forget water or a hat, the sun can beat down on you pretty hard in the summer.

This place has an interesting history, but the best part is the views. The chateau provides an opportunity to see 270 degrees below Les Baux.
