    Current Hôtel de Ville. The town's most beautiful Renaissance mansion was built in 1571 by the rich Protestant family of Claude de Manville. The irregular façade, which follows the course of the main road, contains mainly mullioned windows. The inner courtyard, flanked by a portico, repeats the same pattern as the Renaissance windows. The monumental first floor fireplace has an interlacing mantelpiece (1571) surmounting a frieze decorated with triglyphs resting on Doric columns. The Town restored the building at the end of the 1960s.

    The imposing fortress of Tarascon stands like a sentinel overlooking the waters of the Rhône. During the Middle Ages, the château was located on the border of the County of Provence, opposite Beaucaire and French territory, and gave the impression of defence. Louis II, Duke of Anjou and Count of Provence, began the construction of the château in 1400. The work was continued by Louis III, then René I. The fortress was eclipsed by the Renaissance palace during the reign of 'Good King René'.

  • Moulin communal - Heritage

    Built heritage - Mill

    This mill was built in 1627 in La Loube, to the north of the village, and supplied the village with flour. It had several successive owners, before once again becoming the property of the commune in the 19th century. It operated until the middle of that century, but only on four days a week; on the other days, the water was reserved for watering gardens. After the death of the last tenants in 1985, the mill was destroyed following a decision by the municipal council. All that remains today is the paddle wheel, which is in good condition.

    Placed at the entrance to villages, on squares and at crossroads, crosses were seen daily by field workers and travellers, merchants and soldiers, who all hoped to receive protection and favours from them. They were objects of respect and received many visitors, who maintained them and decorated them with flowers. Even the most remote crosses were visited annually by parishioners during the fondly remembered 'Rogation' processions.

    The Hôtel Quiqueran de Beaujeu testifies to the history of Arles in more than one respect. It is a vestige of a period of prosperity in the town, during which rich bourgeois and nobles made their mark by constructing their sumptuous private mansions. The building bears witness to the majesty and charm of Classical architecture inspired by Parisian mansions. Its name evokes a powerful old Arles family, which provided a number of public figures and had a profound effect on the history of the town.
