Quite nice too...........but lo and behold, it is also famous for another important reason.
Think of the name - Les Baux. Near this village in around 1821 a local found a new mineral rock - and it now bears the name bauxite.!!!
Especially relevant to a person from north Australia - with both Gove in the NT and Weipa in Queensland on opposite sides of the Gulf of Carpentaria, between them producing a large chunk of the world's bauxite today.
Read the inscription - pretty easy, even though in French.
