Description

A statue of a pregnant Virgin Mary, an astronomical observatory in a former nuclear missile silo, a hotel room in a tree or a gypsy caravan, primitive Provençal artists, the mark of Christ's knee, a fountain that flows with wine, a caiman dedicated to the Virgin Mary, a church in a theatre, an erotic mediaeval bas relief, a countess who returned to life, a Provençal Villa Médicis, a false volcano at La Roquebrussane, a "sheep bridge" at Arles, a rain-making saint, an alchemist's garden, a magic palindrome at Oppède...

Far from the crowds and the usual clichés, Provence offers countless off-beat experiences and is home to any number of well-hidden treasures that are revealed only to residents and travellers who find their way off the beaten track.

An indispensable guide for those who thought they knew Provence well or would like to discover the other face of the city.
