  Place des Moulins
by BeChar

Lying at the top of the hill, this square had up to 15 windmills in the XVIth century. Using water as driving force, the windmills progressively disappeared. The remains of two mills are still visible.
The square received its current design of Provençal village with trees and benches in the XIXth century.

Leave the square by rue des Moulins, although the Red Tour suggests Rue des Muettes.
