Free visit of the Jean Giono Center (Hôtel Raffin, exhibitions and gardens).
The objective of the interpretation and documentation center is to offer literary tourism in the area.
A place of cultural mediation, it offers a new permanent exhibition, Jean Giono: "the paths of a work".
Created in 1992, the Jean Giono center is installed in a beautiful Provencal building of the XVIIIth century. You will be able to admire the old Provencal floor tiles of this building, its period woodwork and its beautiful ceilings. A scenographic garden offers a privileged space for resting, reading and writing, and a documentation and research center preserves and promotes the writer's work.
The Jean Giono Center also organizes literary walks, meetings with writers, readings and travelling exhibitions all year round.
