  • Fontaine du Savoir et de la Connaissance - Heritage

    Built in 1909, this fountain pays tribute to the River Durance which flows to the north of Châteaurenard. Its inscription, 'Eici, l’aigo es d’or' (Here, water is gold) reveals the importance of this river, not only for the Châteaurenard region, but also for a large part of the Pays d'Arles. Its canalisation and distribution throughout the territory by means of a hydraulic network of small streams and canals allowed a flourishing fruit and vegetable production industry to develop on this arid or marshy land.

    The Place de la République, in the town centre, is the result of progressive development through a number of architectural and urban operations. It is to the south of the old Roman forum. In the Middle Ages, it was reduced to a narrow forecourt between Saint-Trophime Church and Sainte-Anne Church. Its current surface area was then occupied by several residential blocks. It was mainly after the construction of the town hall, in the 17th century, that the Place changed considerably.

    In the mid-17th century, a lay brotherhood of penitents had this chapel built on the Place de l'Eglise, shaded by cypress trees, on the edge of the cliff overlooking the Valley of La Fontaine. Its underground cellars contained the bodies of members of the Brotherhood. It was unearthed from the ruins in 1937 by the 'Maintenance des Confréries of Langue d'Oc'. It was then dedicated to Saint Estelle, who looks after the memory of the old Penitents of Les Baux and is patron saint of the Félibrige Association.

    The Château, in the heart of Camargue, takes its name from one of the estate's owners: François Joseph d'Avignon d'Arlatan, who constructed the first building there in the 18th century. But its finest moment came at a time when the rich Marseille businessman Louis Noilly Prat bought it and turned it into a hunting lodge. However, the interest of this building lies mainly in the rather crazy dream that he achieved here.
