Cornillon-Confoux, Provence, France

Cornillon-Confoux is an oasis of tranquility - a small hamlet located not far away from Salon-de-Provence, at the top of a hill which offers beautiful views of the large area of ​​Provence. In good weather you can even see the Mont Ventoux, located about 70 km away from here.

The old town

We move down the Grand Rue street in the southern direction. After about 200 meters we reach the Place de l'Eglise (A; GPS: 43.562218, 5.071715), which features the twelfth-century church with an interesting bell tower. Near the church was installed a modern sculpture called "Ikaria" created by Igor Mitoraj, renowned Polish sculptor.
