    This altar was erected in 1794 by the people of Fontvieille, to symbolise their allegiance to their homeland. Men and women came in two different processions and left sprays of flowers and ears of wheat to demonstrate their fidelity. Located a few metres south of Daudet's Mill, it was knocked down to the bottom of the hill and then put back in place in 1935. It is an 80 cm wide cubic block, with a shallow square hollow on top. There is no décor or inscription on the stone.

    Opposite the majestic façade of the Hôtel de Manville was a large residence dated 1571 (known as the Logis de Brisson-Peyre); all that remains is a muntin window whose entablature bears the Calvinist inscription 'Post Tenebras Lux 1571' (Light After Darkness). This affirmation of Protestant faith suggests the existence of an oratory of reformed worship. The reformed religion had many supporters in Les Baux, thanks to the tolerance of the then Baron of Les Baux, Honoré des Martins.

    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
