General Description Tourist headlight of Arles’ sector. Alphonse Daudet’s windmill known also as "Moulin Saint Pierre" (Saint Peter’s windmill) isn’t the only one in Fontvieille.
Front Description It was built in 1815 and continued grinding during a whole century.
During the 1st World War most men were drafted and the wheat was requisitioned. These events condemned definitively our last windmill.

In 1935 the association "Alphonse Daudet’s friend" decided to restore it and create a museum dedicated to the author of the "Letters of my Windmill". This building became the symbol of the writer and his work.
