    Description

    Saint-Rémy de Provence strekt zich uit aan de voet van het Alpilles-massief, in de gouden driehoek die begrensd wordt door de Durance en de Rhône, het hart van een regio met unieke landschappen: de Crau, de Camargue en de Comtat. De Alpilles is een rotsachtig klein massief dat zich uitstrekt van het oosten tot het westen over ongeveer 40 km vanaf de Durance-rivier en dat een tiental kilometer breed is. De stad is omgeven door zeer gevarieerde landschappen die sinds de klassieke oudheid door de mens zijn bewerkt. Ongeveer 600 jaar voor onze jaartelling hebben de eerste volkerenstammen zich gevestigd op het einde van een vallei aan de noordelijke kant van de Alpilles. Er was een overvloed aan water en dankzij het woud konden ze zich voorzien van wild en hout. Deze buitengewone site bood alle voordelen die de vestiging van de mens mogelijk maakten. Het zijn de Grieken die het verbouwen van olijf- en wijngaarden hebben ingevoerd in de Provence. Vanaf de klassieke oudheid begon men steengroeves te ontginnen aan de voet van de Alpilles. De Romeinen creëerden rond Glanum een irrigatienetwerk dat vandaag nog steeds gedeeltelijk in gebruik is. Dankzij de uitdroging van het moerasgebied ten noorden van de stad en de constructie van het Réal-kanaal nam de oppervlakte aan landbouwgrond aanzienlijk toe tijdens de middeleeuwen. Saint-Rémy ontwikkelde zich dan ook in de loop der eeuwen, met als hoofdactiviteiten een agricultuur van voedingsgewassen en de exploitatie van de steengroeves. Vanaf de 19e eeuw komt de economische welvaart van Saint-Rémy vooral voort uit industriële landbouwproducten. De agrarische specialisatie laat een landschap na dat gekenmerkt wordt door de landelijkheid, zonder zware industrialisatie maar ook zonder uitbreiding van de stadsrand, wat er aanzienlijk voor gezorgd heeft dat het platteland van Saint-Rémy dit harmonieuze landschap is geworden. In het zuiden, aan de voet van de rotsige hellingen, het woud en de terreinen met Provençaals kreupelhout (garrigue genaamd) van de Alpilles, teelt men vandaag de dag wijndruiven en olijven. In de drie andere windrichtingen strekt zich een rijke landbouwvlakte uit die herhaaldelijk wordt onderbroken door een haag van cipressen en die voornamelijk beplant is met fruitbomen, groentegewassen, graan- en zonnebloemvelden. Er worden ook schapen en paarden op gekweekt. De voet van de Alpilles heeft geen voordeel van het water van de kanalen; daar bevinden zich de meeste wijndomeinen en olijfgaarden. De wijngaarden zijn biologisch geteeld en talrijke wijnen zijn geklasseerd als A.O.C. “Les Baux de Provence”, een kwaliteitslabel dat de oorsprong van de wijnen uit de streek van Les Baux de Provence controleert. In 1956 verwoeste een vreselijke vriesperiode alle olijfgaarden van de streek. Uit enkele boomstronken zijn weer nieuwe bomen gegroeid en sinds enkele jaren werden er vele bijgeplant, wat ervoor gezorgd heeft dat er een nieuwe oliemolen opgetrokken kon worden in Saint-Rémy. Deze gronden worden gekenmerkt door kalkheuvels, aromatisch kreupelhout en door de bossen van Aleppo-dennen en groene eiken die het rijke natuurdomein van de Alpilles vormen. Vanop de Alpilles is het uitzicht op Saint-Rémy dat aan de voet van het massief genesteld ligt, onvergetelijk. De schoonheid van dit landschap en de rijke fauna en flora rechtvaardigen de maatregelen ter bescherming van het gebied (rode zone, verordeningen voor de bescherming van de biotoop).

      Description

      Saint-Rémy de Provence lies at the foot of the Alpilles Massif, in the golden triangle surrounded by the Durance and the Rhône and at the heart of a region of uniquely diverse landscapes, including La Crau, Camargue and Le Comtat. The Alpilles are a small rocky limestone massif, which starts at the Durance; they extend 40 km from East to West and 10 km across. The town is surrounded by extremely diverse The upper, narrower part is devoted to the sanctuary around the sacred source, with small temples dedicated to deities including Valetudo, the goddess of health, and Hercules. The middle zone contains the monumental centre with a Basilica, the Forum, the Curia and some more temples.

The first tribes settled at the bottom of a valley on the north face of the Alpilles in approximately 600 B.C. There was plentiful water and the forest provided them with game and wood. This wonderful site provided everything required for human settlement. The Greeks planted olive trees and vines in Provence. Stone quarries began to be operated at the foot of the Alpilles in Antiquity. The Romans created an irrigation network around Glanum, part of which is still used. In the Middle Ages, the amount of farmable land available was considerably increased by the drying out of the marshlands to the north of the town and the construction of the Réal Canal. The town of Saint-Rémy grew over the centuries; its main activities were subsistence agriculture and the operation of the quarries. From the 19th century, economic salvation for the region came from trading agricultural industry products. Agricultural specialisation resulted in a landscape characterised by rural life, with no heavy industrialisation or urban development; this is one of the main reasons for the harmonious nature of the Saint Rémy countryside. Today, vines and olive trees are grown to the south, at the foot of the rocky cliffs, the forest and the garrigue of the Alpilles. A rich agricultural plain extends in the other three directions, interspersed with cypress bushes and covered mainly with fruit trees, vegetable crops, fields of cereals and sunflowers. Ewes and horses are also bred there. The water from the canals does not reach the foot of the Alpilles, where most of the vineyards and olive groves are. The vineyards are organic and many vintages are classified as ‘Les Baux de Provence’ AOC. In 1956, a terrible frost killed all the region’s olive groves; some trees grew back from stumps, and many more have been planted over the last few years, resulting in the construction of a new oil mill in Saint Rémy. This land is dominated by the limestone cliffs, aromatic garrigue and forests of Alep pine and green oak which make up the rich natural spaces of the Alpilles. Enjoy an unforgettable view of Saint Rémy, nestled at the foot of the Massif, from the top of the Alpilles.
