Provencal Clothing Museum

Renovated as a Provencal clothing museum, the 18th century oil mill immerses visitors in the past and traditions through the colourful story of daily life in the old times. Visit by appointment (In French only).
Located in an old oil mill, which stopped all activity after the terrible freeze of 1956 that wiped out most of the olive trees in the region, more than 200 items of clothing (everyday life women's, men's and children's clothing and accessories) in good condition are now on permanent exhibit.
The interior architecture of the mill with its six vaults of presses, the millstones, the kitchen as well as some very beautiful specific pieces (wedding dress, communion dress…) add a further interest to the set of displays.
