    The remains of this imposing testimony to ancient engineering were identified and excavated by Fernand Benoît in the immediate post-war period.

    Saint Honorat Abbey in Tarascon was founded in accordance with the wishes of a layman, Rostaing de Gantelme; having survived the massacre of the Sicilian Vespers in 1282, he ended up in the Lérins Islands, opposite the city of Cannes, while fleeing the Italian coast. There was a Clunisian monastery on the islands at the time, founded by Honorat of Arles in the 5th century. Rostaing de Gantelme swore to found a Benedictine monastery to prove his gratitude to God. He was not to fulfil his promise, which was not executed until 1352, by his grandson Jean, Seneschal of Provence.

    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.
