Château des Baux-de-Provence

My beautiful castle

From March to November 2023

Overlooking the famous village of Les Baux-de-Provence, the Château des Baux is an antique medieval fortress built on a rocky spur. The castle offers a splendid panorama on the vineyards and olive groves which inspired many painters and poets such as Cézanne or Mistral.

The "My beautiful castle" journey offers a playful and interactive discovery of this historical site and allows children to understand the history of the Château des Baux, from its construction to today. By turns knights, troubadours or peasants, children will learn about the codes of the Middle Ages thanks to the games and riddles that punctuate the different stages of the tour, in a visit plan given to them on site (or available for download below).

Duration of the tour : 1h30
