Thanks to its long and complicated history, Provence offers a wonderful summary of a European culture, with a huge range of art pieces of any kind. From the Antiquity, Provence still conserves a unique ensemble of mighty and very well preserved buildings : amphitheaters, aqueducts, villas and temples. Painters like Vincent Van Gogh were fascinated by this legacy. The trouble Middle Ages brought major testimony of French heritage : fortified cities like Aigues-Mortes or Les Baux-de-Provence, amazing Romanesque abbeys like Sénanque, Silvacane or Le Thoronet, and above all what is still today the biggest Gothic palace in the world : the papal Palace in Avignon. The famous hilltop villages of Luberon and Alpilles are completing this medieval panorama. Modern Times, from the 16th to the 18th century can be seen in Grignan, and above all in Aix-en-Provence. The city, former capital of the area and emblematic town of Provence, is full of delicate fountains, shaded lanes, colorful facades and majestic private bastides. A complete taste of France !
