Description

Occupying the workshop-home of the famous santon-maker Thérèse Neveu (1866-1946), to whom one room is entirely dedicated, this miniature world displays 200 clay figurines created by local artists, replicating in intimate detail the colourful sights and characters that Marcel Pagnol described in his works or which have been immortalised on the big screen. The visit, which also includes audio and video extracts, highlights the history of santons in Provence since the 18C.
