Long Description:
"Les Baux-de-Provence has a spectacular position in the Alpilles mountains, set atop a rocky outcrop that is crowned with a ruined castle overlooking the plains to the south. Its name refers to its site: in Provençal, a bauç is a rocky spur. It is one of the most beautiful villages in France and has over 1.5 million visitors per year." (visit link)

Our pictures and coordinates were taken from the top of the Tour Sarrasine at the Castle of Baux. Access to the tower is a bit perilous, so do be careful.
