13 Queen Jeanne’s Pavillon

 

Nestling in the Fontaine Valley near the old wash-house is an elegant corner pavilion in the Renaissance style built for Jeanne de Quiqueran, the wife of Honoré des Martins, Baron of Les Baux from 1568 to 1581. It is a decorative piece of architecture designed to ornament a garden that belonged to the Baux family and was known as the "Count's Garden" or the "King's Orchard". Frédéric Mistral had a replica built for his tomb in Maillane.
