The mansion is attractive, comprising a 15th century building renovated in the 17th century; it is one of the most beautiful mansions in the region of the château, combining the ideal Classicism of the Renaissance, a range of details, layout, structures and refined décor. It has four inner courtyards.

    Jeanne de Quiqueran, Lady of Les Baux, was the wife of Honoré des Martins, governor of Les Baux de Provence and successor of Montmorency. Together with her sister, she built Quiqueran hospital between 1542 and 1583 in the upper part of town, near the old Saint Blaise Chapel. The hospital cared for ordinary patients, while Saint-André hospital, in the Valley, was transformed into a leprosarium. It was later renamed 'Hôtel Dieu et Charité des Baux' and remained open until 1787. It is a beautiful building with a remarkable colonnade on the first floor.

    Tarascon enjoyed many privileges under the reign of the Counts of Provence. In August 1272, an Act of Charles I of Anjou, the uncle of King René, authorised the founding of a Maison de la Monnaie (Mint), thus allowing Tarascon to mint money in the same way as Tours. Coins were minted here from 1387 to 1520. During this time, a real coin and a fake coin were nailed to the door, in order to inform the population and discourage forgers. The mint ceased operation between 1518 and 1526 and between 1543 and 1591, as its activity was contested by the Provence Parliament.

    The Towers of Camargue, little of which remains on the ground, are nevertheless still present in the toponymy of the delta and in written sources. They were subject to the many fluctuations of the branches of the Rhône and their history also testifies to a range of different functions. The towers were originally defensive, and also acted as lighthouses for sailors, as visual communication aids ('farots'), and as a commercial surveillance post.

    This statue was erected in the 19th century (1867) during a Mission in the upper part of the commune, at the top of Pic Chabaud. It was the then parish priest, Father Louis Alexis, who decided to carry out the Mission. The commission to produce the statue was given to the company Vigne de Lyon, on the basis of a model created for Lourdes by Joseph Fabisch. It was exhausting work for the men, carters and horses to transport the 1,860 kg of the statue to the top of the hill.
