  • Le lavoir - Heritage

    Built heritage - Wash house
    • (0)
    • (0)

    This is a very attractive wash house made of Fontvieille stone. The fresh water came from the 'Vieille Font' fountain nearby. At the time, the inhabitants used it to wash their clothes during the 'bugado' ('washing' in Provençal). It is fairly large, as the village's population was growing steadily over time, and the wash house had to meet everyone's needs. It is a timeless place; it is in the country and thus has a calm atmosphere.

    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.

    Saint Michel Chapel, or the Chapel of the White Penitents, is the oldest monument in Cabannes. Constructed in the 12th century, it was abandoned in the 15th and then occupied by the Brotherhood of White Penitents in 1633; the Brotherhood restored it and remained there until 1920. Half a century later, in 1974, Jean Girard, grandson of the Brotherhood's last Prior, launched an appeal to all the people of Cabannes; this appeal was heard and the chapel was perfectly restored both inside and out.

  • Fontaine des quatre renards - Heritage

    Built heritage - Fountain

    • (0)

    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.
