  • Cute and really funny illustrations.
  • A nice Museum, small but packed with drawings, prints, photos and various items, all of Peynet. You pass a pleasant hour and only cost 3 euros. Also there is always a second view, dedicated ud another artist, as Kristian and now Dubout/Pagnol. The staff are friendly and there is a space where you can rest peacefully. I do occasionally go there, because there is always associated with a view by another artist.
