    This is a very attractive Oratory in the centre of Les Paluds de Noves. The Oratory was dedicated as a votive offering to Saint Roch, patron saint of plague victims; a traditional festival held on the first Sunday of September is dedicated to this saint. On this occasion, a 'carreto ramado' ('rowed chariot' in Provençal) parades through the hamlet of Les Paluds de Noves.

    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.

    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.

    The 'Castrum druentioe', still called the Château of the Duc de Guise, is a former Celto-Ligurian oppidum built in a strategic location. It was fortified at the end of the Roman Empire and was a strategic point for keeping watch over the Durance Valley. A population of men-at-arms and shepherds lived at the base of the fortress. The stronghold was destroyed in the 6th century by the Visigoths, who had come to lay siege to Arles. It was rebuilt in the 11th century and became the fiefdom of the Counts of Provence.

    Built in 1909, this fountain pays tribute to the River Durance which flows to the north of Châteaurenard. Its inscription, 'Eici, l’aigo es d’or' (Here, water is gold) reveals the importance of this river, not only for the Châteaurenard region, but also for a large part of the Pays d'Arles. Its canalisation and distribution throughout the territory by means of a hydraulic network of small streams and canals allowed a flourishing fruit and vegetable production industry to develop on this arid or marshy land.
