Tourism in the Provence
Les Baux de Provence
Rocks carved by time and the ruins of ancient citadel give this balcony of the Alpilles the magic that
deserves it to be considered one of France's the most beautiful villages. You will be seized by the
beauty of the landscapes and colors at any time of day.
Do not leave Baux de Provence without visiting the Carrières de Lumières which was used as the setting
of Jean Cocteau's “Testament of Orpheus. In the gigantic underground room, the immaculate
limestone walls serve as a screen for projections creating an entire visual and musical universe for
visitors to dive in. In 2006, on the occasion of the centennial of the death of Paul Cézanne,
the cathedral will host a show dedicated to the works of the painter.
