Histoire d'une Cité Maraîchère

Châteaurenard - Guided tour - Dates and program to be confirmed

Longtemps place forte de surveillance de la vallée de la Durance, Châteaurenard, de sa colline, surplombe une vallée fertile annonçant les plaines du Comtat et d’Avignon. L"historien" de la ville propose d’expliquer comment l’abondance de l’eau et les terres riches des limons de la Durance ont permis à cette région agricole de devenir l’une des principales régions de production maraîchère de France. Visite du chemin « Entre deux eaux », du centre ancien, du musée des outils agraires et des traditions.
Rendez-vous devant l'Office de Tourisme, un quart d'heure avant le début de la visite.
