Eyguieres Gate

Visitors wishing to walk to the Fontaine Valley can take the cobbled Chemin de la Calade and go through the Eyguières Gate (or Watergate) which, until 1866, was the only entrance of the village.

Rebuilt by Constable de Montmorency, the gate was raised in the 18th century by the Prince of Monaco who had been granted the Barony of Les Baux in 1642. The coat-of-arms of the House of Grimaldi can still be seen above the gate, in a cartouche decorated with Baroque foliage.
