    The present church is known to be built on the site of a Roman place of worship. The first Christian chapel was built there in the 10th century. All that remains of the 12th century Romanesque church is the semi-circular apse, followed by a window surmounted by a cupola which supports a bell tower and a nave with three vaulted broken barrel bays.

  • Oratoire Notre-Dame-de-Grâce - Heritage

    Built heritage - Oratory

    This Oratory, constructed in 1954, commemorates the 1854 miracle and gives thanks for the healing of Maillane residents during a cholera epidemic. Cholera was rife in the commune during August of that year and many people of all ages died. Some people fled the village and only 100 remained out of a population of 1,500. On 28 August 1854, a few people brought out the Madonna of Notre-Dame-de-Grâce and formed a procession. The Madonna was wearing a violet dress at the time.

    Before the Revolution, the town of Les Baux was the centre of both Royal and seigneurial jurisdiction, whose seat was for a long time located in this building, built in 1499. It is where justice was served in the name of the sovereign. This building is now home to the Les Baux-de-Provence Tourist Office. The rampart against which the buildings were built was cut through in the 19th century to allow the opening of the current entrance to the town.

    The recently restored Porte Calendrale commanded the northern entrance to Barbentane. There is a wonderful view of this gate from the end of the Grand'Rue. All that remains of the 11th century ramparts is a defensive tower which was transformed into a prison and used until 1826.

  • La chapelle du Castellet - Heritage

    The Le Castellet site, a small rocky plateau, was occupied by an oppidum in the 4th century BC. It was abandoned two centuries later, but redeveloped in the 12th century. Within the château walls was a high tower, which no longer exists, as well as a church dedicated to Saint Mary. Only the apse remains standing: it is semi-domed and supported by eight ribs resting on corbels. These remains are currently located on the land of a private Mas and are therefore inaccessible to the public.

    Date: 1558 Era: Renaissance Type: Public communal architecture Status: Property of the town of Arles, listed as a national Historic Monument in 1920 The Tower viewed from the Place de la République Although the Clock Tower now seems like to be an integral part of the hôtel de ville, more than a century actually separates the construction of the two buildings. It was in fact constructed in the mid-16th century, to replace an older tower.
