Les Baux de Provence French Moments

9. Les Baux-de-Provence

Location: Provence

Set above Les Baux-de-Provence sits the “Citadelle des Baux”, the ruined castle of the village. The fortress is hardly distinguishable from the edge of the plateau on which it was built. It still features remnants of its turbulent past: the dominating keep, the Sarracen tower (taking its name from the Saracen raiders who came from the South), and the Paravelle tower (used as a lookout).The keep is accessed by a difficult stairway which will make you dizzy to climb but the view from its top is one of the most impressive in all of Provence.
