    Erected in 1869 (restored in 1982 and 1994), this Oratory dedicated to Saint Eloi is one of the most common votive buildings in our region. The 1994 restoration allowed the Noves Heritage Association to bring the tradition of the Saint Eloi chariot back to Noves. This 'carreto ramado' takes place every year on the first Sunday in June.

    The imposing fortress of Tarascon stands like a sentinel overlooking the waters of the Rhône. During the Middle Ages, the château was located on the border of the County of Provence, opposite Beaucaire and French territory, and gave the impression of defence. Louis II, Duke of Anjou and Count of Provence, began the construction of the château in 1400. The work was continued by Louis III, then René I. The fortress was eclipsed by the Renaissance palace during the reign of 'Good King René'.

    This church was built on the site of an old chapel which probably dated back to the 12th century. The building was at risk of collapse around 1930. It was therefore fully renovated at the end of the 1930s, mainly through the generosity of Mlle de Jonquières, who financed a large part of the work and paid for a new altar.
