    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.

    This Baroque-style theatre is a former church which belonged to the Friars Preachers. In 1333, having abandoned Jarnègues Island, they settled in the St Nicolas district of Tarascon, where they were given St Jean Batiste Chapel. They replaced it with a very beautiful church, dedicated to the same Saint. In 1825, the chapel was transformed into a theatre, which was officially inaugurated in 1828. It was destroyed by a fire in 1884. The reconstruction of the theatre began in 1887. The façade was completely recreated and a huge, deep stage was built.
