The Saint-Vincent square is the place where the White Penitents chapel and the Saint-Vincent church are, and offers a beautiful view of the area surrounding the village and more especially on the Fontaine valley. The name Les Baux de Provence is a symbol of quality: wine, born of rock and sun are warm, its olive oil is fruity and fiery. However, the essence that makes the charm and flavor so distinctive Provencal villages is there: small squares, shaded terraces, narrow streets and shops. After we will return to Marseilles.
