    The former private mansion of the Gras de Preigne family has housed the Court House since 1858. Constructed in the Renaissance style in the early 17th century, it was redeveloped slightly later 'in the French style' or 'in the Parisian style', with U-shaped main buildings built around a main courtyard (Place du Bâtonnier Louis Gonthier). Behind this, the current entrance to the Court House overlooking the Place du Docteur Braye has a 1620s Mannerist-style façade.

    There has been an oratory on this site for a very long time, but it is thought to have been destroyed during the Revolution. It was replaced by François Pitra in 1852 and destroyed in 1986 during work to widen the road. It was then rebuilt as it is today. The statue of Saint Martha, patron saint of Tarascon and once famous for curing eye problems, was replaced by a statue of Notre-Dame-de-Grâce. Architectural description

    The remains of this imposing testimony to ancient engineering were identified and excavated by Fernand Benoît in the immediate post-war period. Until then, they had been interpreted as either a retention pond, part of the hydraulic network taking water from the Alpilles to Arles, or as a fulling mill.
