It is both a defensive and residential construction; although the tower was an important symbol of power and military strength in those times of war (the 14th and 15th centuries were punctuated with a series of conflicts, better known as the Hundred Years' War). It was combined with other constructions which housed the seigniorial residence and a ceremonial room where justice was administered.

    This construction was built in 1646. It serves as a reminder of a famous knights' tournament, 'Le Pas d'Armes de la Bergère', which was organised by King René and held on the island of Jarnègues in 1449. The branches of the Rhône flowed as far as this district for centuries. It was from here that the boats left, carrying goods and men, and for trading purposes. It is the town's only secondary gate.

    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.
