    Frédéric Mistral had his tomb built in 1907, before his death in 1914; it is a very faithful replica of the Pavillon de la Reine Jeanne in Les Baux-de-Provence. On the bell which sounded his death-knell and announced his loss, there is an engraving of a 1907 poem called 'Moun toumbéu' (My tomb'). It was engraved several days before his death and it was when Mistral went to admire the sculptor's work in the church that he caught a chill and died. Architectural description
