Welcome to Salon-de-Provence

Also worth a visit is the 14th-century Collégiale St-Laurent and the town's two famous, long-lived savonneries (soap-makers). From the turn of the 20th century until the 1950s, soap was a buoyant business thanks to Salon’s abundance of olive oil and the palm and copra oils arriving from the French colonies. Perhaps the key sight, however, is the imposing Château de l'Empéri, an overwhelming fortified palace that's now an accessible museum of art and military history.
