    Opposite the majestic façade of the Hôtel de Manville was a large residence dated 1571 (known as the Logis de Brisson-Peyre); all that remains is a muntin window whose entablature bears the Calvinist inscription 'Post Tenebras Lux 1571' (Light After Darkness). This affirmation of Protestant faith suggests the existence of an oratory of reformed worship. The reformed religion had many supporters in Les Baux, thanks to the tolerance of the then Baron of Les Baux, Honoré des Martins.

    Located at the very place where the first residence in Noves was built, it was originally a simple hermitage for Observantine monks. The chapel nave, adjacent to the hermitage, was built in 1630 and extended in 1722 in accordance with the wishes of the inhabitants of Noves during the great Plague of 1720-1721. A pilgrimage linked to this wish still takes place today (first Saturday in September). The apse was built in 1832, followed by the narthex in the 19th century. The inside of the chapel can only be visited on Heritage Days.

    The first mention of bull-racing in Graveson was in July 1800. An enclosure surrounded by walls, partly within the courtyard of a privately-owned 18th century Mas, can be seen on the 1830 cadastral register. This enclosure is at the origin of the current amphitheatres. The amphitheatres have been renovated several times and were still private property in 1994. They were then managed by the Club Turin and maintained by the town hall, which took over their ownership shortly afterwards. Architectural description

    The old village had three churches: Saint-André in the La Fontaine Valley, the first parish church, abandoned in 1481 and since disappeared; Notre Dame du Château or Sainte-Catherine Chapel (12th-16th centuries), the castle chapel in the citadel enclosure, and Saint-Vincent Church, the former priory which depended on Saint-Paul de Mausole in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. To the right of the portal, hidden behind a pillar, the Provençal poet Frédéric Mistral is said to have engraved his name in the stone, together with the name of his home village of Maillane.

    In the centre of the monastery, St Michel Church and the Cloister plunge us into the purity of 12th century Romanesque art. Some rooms around the cloister, such as the chapter, have a 17th century vault. It is still possible to take part in community services. St Michel church, where most services take place, is a place of silence, prayer and personal adoration.

    This was the village hospital in the 17th century. The building then had several functions, including as a hall for community council meetings and a girls' school. The Chapel belonged to the Nuns of Saint-Joseph-des-Vans (from 1849), who devoted themselves to educating the young children of Maillane. This building, a gift from the Hermitte d’Armelin family, is currently home to Le Roudelet: the club of the 3rd age and the Maison des Associations.

Architectural description: High square cippus topped with a truncated pyramid. The wrought iron cross is finely crafted and Christ is crowned with a halo.
