    Strolling in the streets

    Les Baux - France

    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.

    Inside the cathedral

    I liked very much the cathedral in Le Baux. There is also a nice view from the terrace next to it. Do not miss both.

    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.

    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.

    Trebuchet at les Baux

    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.
