    Opposite the majestic façade of the Hôtel de Manville was a large residence dated 1571 (known as the Logis de Brisson-Peyre); all that remains is a muntin window whose entablature bears the Calvinist inscription 'Post Tenebras Lux 1571' (Light After Darkness). This affirmation of Protestant faith suggests the existence of an oratory of reformed worship. The reformed religion had many supporters in Les Baux, thanks to the tolerance of the then Baron of Les Baux, Honoré des Martins.

    The Assomption Church dates back to 1325. The forecourt of the parish church is accessed via the 19th century monumental horseshoe staircase. On the forecourt near the Town Hall, at the bottom of the church, a decorated cast iron cross sits on top of a stone altar where the priest of the commune would officiate under certain circumstances. This cross replaced an old wooden cross which supported a very large Christ. The first church was within the village of La Savoie, at the foot of the château ruins.
