Fodor's Expert Review Château des Baux
High above the Val d'Enfer, the 17-acre clifftop sprawl of ruins is contained under the Château des Baux umbrella. At the entrance, the Tour du Brau contains the Musée d'Histoire des Baux, a small collection of relics and models that shelters a permanent music-and-slide show called Van Gogh, Gauguin, Cézanne au Pays de l'Olivier, featuring artworks depicting olive orchards in their infinite variety. From April through September there are fascinating medieval exhibitions: people dressed up in authentic costumes, displays of medieval crafts, and even a few jousting tournaments with handsome knights carrying fluttering silk tokens of their beloved ladies. Fire the catapult or try the crossbow: it's up to medieval you. The exit gives access to the wide and varied grounds, where the tiny Chapelle St-Blaise and towers mingle with skeletal ruins.
