The town of Les Baux-de-Provence is located between Avignon and Arles on the picturesque steep hillside on the rocky top of which one can see the ruins of an ancient castle. (This region of Provence is called Les Alpilles and Les Baux-de-Provence is one of the most interesting places to visit in the region). It is located in 7-km south-west of Saint-Remy-de-Provence.

Most tourists are attracted here by the preserved ruins of a medieval castle where once famous troubadours sang their love songs. Then, in the 11-13th centuries, it was a formidable citadel, a stronghold of the feudal clan of warriors-aristocrats of Baux, the most powerful barons of the south of France. At their times Les Baux-de-Provence lived independently, without obeying any of the medieval lords of Provence. But alas, in the late 14th century the ruling dynasty of Baux ceased to exist, the town was taken over by the Counts of Provence.
