The village is small, so it's easy to visit, walking along the narrow and steep streets, and watching the integration of the houses with the rocks.
Standing in the top of the hill, this ruined structure includes several buildings from different epochs.
There is a audio guided visit in six languages, but we skipped it.
On another part of the hill there stands the walls of a Chapel of St. Blaise and next to it another of St. Claude, both n a flat place near the southern edge of the large rocky promontory.
The simple facade of the Maison des Porcelets is intact near the church, as is an adjacent small domed tower. Along the main street and nearby are many shops of varying quality.
It is a fantastic view you can have over the small villages surround the Fort village of Baux town which stand of the top of the rocky hill.
This is the street that goes to the 12th century church, St-vincent. A tradition of the local people is to bring lambs to midnight mass at Christmas.
Under construction, more to come
The town of Les Baux is located in the small mountains Les Alpilles.
Apparently the lords of les Baux kept doves, you can see the dovecoves in the photo to the left of the ruins.
In this photo, you can see the first part of the citadel ruins we saw, including some of the foundations. The citadel had been built into the bedrock.
We shot this photo, illustrating the panoramic view available from the citadel. You can see the olive & grape fields below in the Entreconque (sp?) valley.
Much to my surprise, one of the first things I see is a trebuchet! These weapons were used to throw large boulders against city walls and fortifications, to knock them down.
