    This ancient celto-Ligurian oppidum was a religious center well before the Christian era, as evidenced by the numerous remains of cults such as the Gallo-Roman altars exposed today in the lapidary Museum of Avignon. They honoured the Greco-Roman deities. In 1878 the Bonnard Canon, cure Dean of Orgon, had built on the site of the old place of worship the present Chapel.

    The Hôtel de Luppé's astonishing façade, opposite the western tower of the amphitheatre, resembles a Florentine palace. Its successive owners evoke the past of several large Arles families and testify to their great contribution to domestic architecture in the town.. Although dating from the 17th century, the only part visible from the outside is the façade erected in the early 20th century by Gaston de Luppé, the artist, scholar and Italophile.

    In Antiquity, cemeteries were always outside the walls of the town and were often located along major roads. At the start of the Empire, cremation graves, sarcophogi and mausolea were dotted along the side of the Via Aurelia, creating a vast necropolis. However, the cemetery became extremely significant during the Paleo-Christian era, with the inhumation of the martyr Saint Genest and the burial of the first Bishops of Arles, who were placed in a chapel later surrounded by a large number of tombs grouped together in several rows.

    Saint Michel de Frigolet Abbey (12th-14th century), in the heart of the unspoilt landscape of La Montagnette, takes its name from the many thyme bushes ('ferigoulo' in Provençal) that dot the hills. In 1133, a community of St Augustine canons settled in Frigolet; the current heart of the monastery dates from this period - the cloister (early 12th century), Saint Michel Church (12th century) and the small Notre Dame du Bon Remède Chapel (11th century).

    Rebuilt at the end of the 17th century on the site of an old fortress destroyed by the residents of Les Baux, the château and its chapel did not go by the name of d'Estoublon until the 18th century. The estate, which covers 200 hectares, as well as its wine-growing and oil-producing operations, was restored around ten years ago by the Schneider family. A milestone testifying to the passage of the old Via Aurelia was found in the château grounds. The Via Aurelia connected the Rhône from Tarascon, to Rome, via Aix and then the Col de la Turbie in Alpes Maritimes.

    Erected in 1869 (restored in 1982 and 1994), this Oratory dedicated to Saint Eloi is one of the most common votive buildings in our region. The 1994 restoration allowed the Noves Heritage Association to bring the tradition of the Saint Eloi chariot back to Noves. This 'carreto ramado' takes place every year on the first Sunday in June.
