Left 1 - The village of Gordes is a typical provençal example of hill perched village.
These medieval built villages rise on hilltops, they usually surround castles and
are often surrounded by walls.

Left 2 - The "Bories". Some of these dwellings date from the 16th. century and
were inhabited until the 19th. Most of them have been restored. The best kept
ones which form a kind of a phantom village can be visited near Gordes.

Left 3 - The fortified citadel of Aigues Mortes, Camargue, from which St. Louis left
for the 11th. crusade.
