Les Baux

 Les Baux-de-Provence

In 2010 we had a day trip to  Les Baux-de-Provence in France. We arrived via a 40 minute bus ride from Arles, the town we were staying in. The lure of Les Baux is its facinating castle fortification at the top of the hill and its delightful medieval town below. After a day wandering around the castle and town, we gorged ourselves with some yummy cookies.

 One of the interesting things about European history is their use of pigeons for eating and messaging. You can see the holes in the structure for the birds.
