It's Sunday and time for my Vintage Weekly Post!Les Baux-de-Provence is a commune in the Bouches-du-Rhône department in southern France, in the province of Provence. It has a spectacular position in the Alpilles mountains, set atop a rocky outcrop crowned with a ruined castle overlooking the plains to the south.
This is the remains of the castle that sits on top of the hill at Les Baux. This is what Wikipedia says about the castle.
Standing on a spur of rock in the heart of the Alpilles, the castle in Les Baux-de-Provence covers an area of 7 hectares and is one of the most majestic locations in France. It is also a Historic Monument. From the castle, there is a breathtaking panoramic view of the Alpilles Valley and the entire region. Thanks to the audioguides available in 10 languages (F, GB, D, I, NL, E, J, R, C, P), visitors can listen to the chaotic, tumultuous history of the Lords of Les Baux and their mediaeval fortress, as they visit the keep, the Sarrazine and Paravelle Towers, the dovecote, the castle chapel and the Chapel of St. Blaise, the former Quiqueran Hospital etc.
I loved everything about visiting this old medievel castle and village.
