Les Baux de Provence, France
from MS Maribelle Photos

Les Baux de Provence

The Church of St. Vincent is the oldest religious building in Les Baux. It was built on the site of a priory from the 10th Century or earlier; the present building was constructed from the 11th to the 15th Centuries and enlarged in 1609.

The 20th Century stained-glass windows by Max Ingrand were a gift from Prince Rainier of Monaco, whose family has ancestral ties to the region. (Since 1642, Monaco's crown princes have been given the title of "Marquis des Baux.")

For more information about the church and other sights in the village, you can purchase an excellent souvenir guide in local shops. The author is Albert Hari, and the booklet's title is Les Baux-de-Provence and its Church.
