  • During the heritage days a visit to the Castle back to different eras (period of the Emperor and the first world war) of the various stalls and demonstrations of market of fire etc... Workshops for children well supervised. The visit to the Museum is superb. The latter is rich and varied objects. The animateirs are friendly and some really passionate. Thanks a lot for a great time under the Sun of provence!
