Visite guidée " Un surprenant patrimoine "
History - Sciences - Technology - Dates and program to be confirmed
Jouques, un village singulier, une histoire particulière et dense liée aux personnages hauts en couleur qui l'ont façonné à travers les siècles.
Le parcours des visites commentées retracent ce passé. Au fil des rues vous découvrez un patrimoine architectural ou se côtoient hôtels particuliers, édifices religieux et bâti rural.
A Jouques, le murmure des eaux rythment la vie du village. Si la fontaine du Portail est créée en 1674, c'est le projet Vallon, en 1774 qui transforme l'ancien chemin du Barri en promenade.
Sa configuration géographique, à l'écart des axes routiers lui a permis de sauvegarder un cadre de vie exceptionnel.

The leading lights in architecture
For your architecture-themed day, this tour will show you buildings and works designed by leading lights including Jean Nouvel, Franck Gehry, Rudy Ricciotti, Stefano Boeri, Le Corbusier, Kengo Kuma, Pouillon, Vasarely, Tadao Endo and others. It will take you to the MuCEM and its amazing footbridge before you get to visit the Villa Méditerranée that is half suspended over the Mediterranean Sea. When lunchtime arrives, we suggest you head to Le Ventre de l’Architecte (literally 'the architect's belly'!) in the Cité Radieuse designed by the great Le Corbusier. The FRAC and its fascinating façade is the next stop on the tour. The Regards de Provence Museum is an example of a very successful restoration while the luminescent modular components which make up the Fondation Vasarely are simply mesmerising. Lastly, conclude your tour at Château La Coste, where architecture meets wine.
Savouring the pleasures of Sainte-Victoire Mountain
Just a stone's throw from Aix-en-Provence, discover Sainte-Victoire mountain and the surrounding area with this gourmet tour bursting with flavour, giving pride of place to local food and wines and topped with stunning mountain scenery and pine woods. Incidentally, six centuries ago, the Good King René – an emblematic figure in Provence's history – declared that he would "drink no other wine than the rosé of Puyloubier". Come along and taste our delicious wines for yourself with MyProvence!
Alpilles on the wine route
If you're visiting the Alpilles, then take advantage of the opportunity to travel the Provençal wine route. Go out to meet passionate winegrowers and their exceptional, often organic, wines. You'll get to try artisanal jams in Maussane before venturing onwards to Mas de Gourgonnier in the Baux-de-Provence appellation. Next, head to Domaine de Vallongue and its broken stones (IGP Alpilles). Le Lézard Gourmand will make a refreshing change for lunch before an afternoon spent at Domaine Valdition with its gourmet on-site shop.
Epiphany in Provence is like nowhere else!
Francis lived happily close beside his tree...
Picked ripe from the tree, figs are simply to die for. They can also be scattered on trays and left to dry in the sun for 3 days: "That's the best way to keep your figs all winter – we serve figs at Christmas as one of Provence's famous 13 Desserts," smiles Jacqueline Honoré.
