Salon de Provence

Slightly in the shadow of its illustrious neighbors, we must admit that Salon is in good company, halfway Arles, Avignon and Aix-en-Provence. If castle Emperi retains immediate attention, it dominates the city from its rock, Salon enjoys a certain reputation due to the presence here of the Patrouille de France, of its large production of olive oil, but also the manufacturing soap. Salon offers the typical charm of Provencal towns, especially in its old town, the castle goshawks. See in particular, the Saint-Michel church, the thirteenth century. Another religious monument, the Gothic church of Saint-Laurent, houses the tomb of a famous man who lived a long time in Salon, Nostradamus. Became an icon of the city, one can see in the center two statues in his likeness, while his former home is now a museum.
