    This chapel is located on private property by the side of the Chemin de Saint-Véran. The quality and perfect stone-setting of this building, most of which is in ruins, make it one of the most characteristic in Romanesque Provence. It had a single nave, with a barrel vault resting on transverse arches and built around a semi-domed apse; on each side of the entrance to the apse were rubble stones decorated with foliage with plant and geometrical designs. There was a side chapel to the south.

    The former Cloister of the Friars Minor, built circa 1550, stands on Place Frédéric Mistral. This beautiful Renaissance-style cloister belonged to the convent founded in Tarascon by this Order in 1362. The monks stayed there until the Revolution, when the convent was sold as a national asset. The town bought the building in 1861 in order to open a crèche, which would be managed by the Sisters of Notre Dame l'Auxiliaire. Their initials (N.D.A.) are engraved on a cross above the entrance door, which leads to a simple room with a wooden ceiling.

    Oriented East-West, the limestone the Alpilles, geological extension of the Luberon Mountains rises in the heart of Provence. By far, its jagged peaks, 300 m to 400 m above sea level, give the illusion of real mountains. They constitute a small limestone massif of 25 km long 6 to 8 km wide. Between Rhône and Durance, point sharply skyward a white mass with bluish reflections.Their chaotic topography is made more strange even by old stone farms. Since the Neolithic period trade routes borrow valleys and settlements are born at their junction, such as Les-Baux.
