  • Small museum lost in nature at the edge of a river facing the mountain: it's very romantic! It contains quite a few of the artist's work: sculptures and drawings. You can see its cuisine as well as (reconstituted) Marly le King. But the most moving is the documentary you see 6 months before his death. Outside, under the trees, we can go to his grave adorned with his sculpture: the Mediterranean. Really, a nice moment.

  • Beautiful farm, a little isolated in a beautiful frame. One can imagine Maillol working in this place. Beautiful exhibition of his works. Maillol is here where he liked to live. Interesting and moving

  • Slightly off the Catalan coast, the Museum is deserved but does not disappoint. The House which has failed to disappear is still there and offers to the contemplation of the public magnificent works of Maillol. The gardens are relaxing and you can imagine the artist and his muses...
