    In the heart of Camargue, ideally placed in the middle of rice plantations, the Rice Museum is a place steeped in history. The buildings are the birthplace of the Bongran factory, a pioneering business in the production and marketing of organic rice founded by Joseph Bon, the father of Robert. The Bongran factory joined the Heureuse Camargue Group and was moved to Gimeaux, just outside Arles. The pioneering techniques developed by Joseph and Robert Bon, such as the natural drying of rice by the Mistral, are still practised today.

    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.

    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'.
