    This is a very attractive wash house made of Fontvieille stone. The fresh water came from the 'Vieille Font' fountain nearby. At the time, the inhabitants used it to wash their clothes during the 'bugado' ('washing' in Provençal). It is fairly large, as the village's population was growing steadily over time, and the wash house had to meet everyone's needs. It is a timeless place; it is in the country and thus has a calm atmosphere.

    Behind its 19th century façade, Saint Denis parish church conceals a great Romanesque nave and a beautiful Gothic chancel. In the side-naves, woodwork and paintings by Mignard adorn the different altars of the rural brotherhoods. The eyes are drawn to the bell tower, which was originally a 'watch tower'. Until the Revolution, the church, the only important 'public space', was a place where the public could come together. Its architecture follows the town's demographic growth. This place

    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.

    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.

    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'.

    This chapel is located on private property by the side of the Chemin de Saint-Véran. The quality and perfect stone-setting of this building, most of which is in ruins, make it one of the most characteristic in Romanesque Provence. It had a single nave, with a barrel vault resting on transverse arches and built around a semi-domed apse; on each side of the entrance to the apse were rubble stones decorated with foliage with plant and geometrical designs. There was a side chapel to the south.
