Les Baux de Provence – in “the book.”
The very top part of Baux is known as the Dead City….ruins from long ago. It was very difficult for me to imagine living there – now or when it was built. I also can’t imagine how they built it. I think I can guess why they built here – easy to defend, and…..
The views in this area are breathtaking. But the wind was intense. Andy threw a rock and the wind brought it right back to him.
The lower part of Baux is a restored village filled with quaint shops and little restaurants. I did some shopping – hoping that part of the money I spend in places like this goes to helping keep it for future generations.
Baux is out of the way, but I am glad we made the trip.
Vincent Van Gogh was in a mental institution near here.
