    The Arlaten Museum, the departmental ethnography museum founded at the end of the 19th century by the poet Frédéric Mistral, is a 'place of memories' of Provençal society. It is the result of feelings of belonging, as expressed during the 19th century, and has helped to perpetuate them in the following century. Although the old building now focuses resolutely on the future, time has passed, leaving its mark on the buildings. The time has come for the Arlaten Museum to undergo extensive renovations, not only to the building but also scientifically speaking.

    Founded under the influence of the work of Saint-Vincent-de-Paul, the Hôpital de la Charité (now called the Employment Exchange) was an addition to the extensive hospital and charity facilities of 17th century Arles. Begun by the Archbishop and dependent on the generosity of sponsors, the site took 20 years to complete. The establishment was intended to take in beggars, care for them, feed them and teach them a trade. It was primarily a place of confinement to prevent vagrancy and operated in these buildings until the Revolution.

    Officially founded in 1885, Saint-Rémy-de-Provence municipal library was not given specific premises and employees until a century later, at the end of the 1980s. In 1990, it was installed in the former Maison Blain - the home of a dynasty of seed-merchants, an extremely important trade in the commune's economic history - and to mark the occasion it was given the name of the Provençal writer Joseph Roumanille (1818-1891). With approximately 40,000 documents, Joseph-Roumanille municipal library has two complementary functions. Promoting public reading

    Placed at the entrance to villages, on squares and at crossroads, crosses were seen daily by field workers and travellers, merchants and soldiers, who all hoped to receive protection and favours from them. They were objects of respect and received many visitors, who maintained them and decorated them with flowers. Even the most remote crosses were visited annually by parishioners during the fondly remembered 'Rogation' processions.
