    Current Hôtel de Ville. The town's most beautiful Renaissance mansion was built in 1571 by the rich Protestant family of Claude de Manville. The irregular façade, which follows the course of the main road, contains mainly mullioned windows. The inner courtyard, flanked by a portico, repeats the same pattern as the Renaissance windows. The monumental first floor fireplace has an interlacing mantelpiece (1571) surmounting a frieze decorated with triglyphs resting on Doric columns. The Town restored the building at the end of the 1960s.

    The first mention of bull-racing in Graveson was in July 1800. An enclosure surrounded by walls, partly within the courtyard of a privately-owned 18th century Mas, can be seen on the 1830 cadastral register. This enclosure is at the origin of the current amphitheatres. The amphitheatres have been renovated several times and were still private property in 1994. They were then managed by the Club Turin and maintained by the town hall, which took over their ownership shortly afterwards. Architectural description

    In Provençal, a 'font' was a fountain or sometimes a spring. This is a small building constructed in 1150 in the Fontvieille countryside. It housed the commune's first spring. The commune took its name from this fountain, 'Vieio Font' in Provençal, which translates as 'old fountain.'. It was already in use in Roman times and still supplies the wash house located nearby.

    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.

    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.
