Musée Regards de Provence


This niche museum is housed in the city’s former sanitary station, operational from 1948 until 1971. It’s essentially a graphic art museum exploring different depictions of Provence, with over 800 significant works by artists including Paul Guigou and Vincent Courdouan. The museum also hosts temporary exhibitions, and there's a super rooftop cafe with fine city views.
