With approximately 40,000 documents, Joseph-Roumanille municipal library has two complementary functions. Promoting public reading

The Anglica Tower, with its turrets, was sung about by Mistral in Les Iscles d'Or. To its left, the 15th century Porte du Séquier marked the boundary of the village.

    Rebuilt at the end of the 17th century on the site of an old fortress destroyed by the residents of Les Baux, the château and its chapel did not go by the name of d'Estoublon until the 18th century. The estate, which covers 200 hectares, as well as its wine-growing and oil-producing operations, was restored around ten years ago by the Schneider family. A milestone testifying to the passage of the old Via Aurelia was found in the château grounds. The Via Aurelia connected the Rhône from Tarascon, to Rome, via Aix and then the Col de la Turbie in Alpes Maritimes.

    This Tower was erected at the request of the Abbey of Montmajour, Pierre de Canillac, between 1348 and 1353. It is both a defensive and residential construction; although the tower was an important symbol of power and military strength in those times of war (the 14th and 15th centuries were punctuated with a series of conflicts, better known as the Hundred Years' War). It was combined with other constructions which housed the seigniorial residence and a ceremonial room where justice was administered.

    Tarascon enjoyed many privileges under the reign of the Counts of Provence. In August 1272, an Act of Charles I of Anjou, the uncle of King René, authorised the founding of a Maison de la Monnaie (Mint), thus allowing Tarascon to mint money in the same way as Tours. Coins were minted here from 1387 to 1520. During this time, a real coin and a fake coin were nailed to the door, in order to inform the population and discourage forgers. The mint ceased operation between 1518 and 1526 and between 1543 and 1591, as its activity was contested by the Provence Parliament.
