    The Oratory of the Virgin, also called Oratory of the Saint or Notre Dame, commemorates the Marian Jubilee of 1851. It is dedicated to Our Lady of Hope and is a monumental building constructed in the 19th century. Its architecture resembles that of a small temple. It has a dressed stone plinth and square pillars with capitals which protrude at the corners; this is surmounted by a cornice supporting a high niche with a semi-circular opening, framed by beautiful columns with bases and capitals under a flat cornice roof.

    Four successive gates protected the only access to the village prior to 1632. To reach the Valley of la Fontaine, visitors can follow the gravel path of La Calade and pass through the Porte d'Eyguières or Porte de l'Eau (because it was through this gate that the water for the villagers arrived), which was the only entrance to the village until 1866. Rebuilt by the Constable of Montmorency, in the 18th century the gate was raised by the Prince of Monaco, who had received the Barony of Les Baux in 1643.

    Everything in the town evokes the memory of the great Provençal poet. The Mas du Juge, where Mistral was born in 1830, is in Maillane. This 18th century building, which entered the possession of the Mistral family in 1803, had a permanent effect on the poet's soul. It was here that he spent 25 years of his life and found the inspiration for 'Miréio', which he started to write within its walls. Since Mistral's time and despite the passing of the years, the dining room in the Mas is still in almost its original condition. Room and museum open to visitors.

    Until the early 14th century, the synagogue of the local Jewish community stood on this site. Pope John XXII had the synagogue destroyed after driving out the Jewish community and in its place he had a chapel built and dedicated to Notre-Dame-d’Enville; this was distinct from Saint Bauldile Church, which was then 'extra muros'. It was inaugurated in 1320 and the marriage contract between Hugues de Sade and Laura de Noves was signed there on 16 January 1325.
