La Royante

La Royante is a bastide (country manor) located in the town of Aubagne in Provence, between Cassis and Aix-en-Provence on the south side of Garlaban mountain. It displays typical 18th-century Provençal architecture including a remarkable Gothic chapel. Mentioned on old maps as "the castle of the bishop", the property currently hosts a guesthouse. It was the center of historical research for Heritage Days in 2011.

Directly accessible from within the main building, the chapel is embedded in a perpendicular wing. The nave shows two bays with ribbed vaults, supported by Corithian pillars. Each bay is decorated with two statues of the evangelists of both sides.
