Visite guidée de l'Abbaye de St Michel de Frigolet

History - Sciences - Technology - Dates and program to be confirmed

L'Abbaye Saint Michel de Frigolet est située en pleine nature, sur la Montagnette, c'est un haut lieu spirituel depuis plus d'un millénaire.
Au centre du Monastère, l'église Saint-Michel et le cloître nous plongent dans la pureté de l'art roman du XIIème siècle. Quelques salles entourant le cloître, comme le châpitre, ont une voûte du XVIIème siècle.
En 1858 une communauté de Prémontrés s'installe à Frigolet. Elle construit alors l'ensemble le plus visible des bâtiments parmi lesquels la Basilique néogothique du XIXème siècle qui enchâsse la chapelle de Notre Dame du Bon Remède du XIIème siècle.
Les statues de Notre Dame du Bon Remède et Saint Michel attirent depuis des siècles de nombreux pèlerins.

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.

The seven wonders of the Bouches-du-Rhône

This tour showcases seven wonders around the Bouches-du-Rhône, easily covered in just half a day if you're riding in a helicopter or – and this is our personal recommendation – staggered over several days during your next trip to Provence! Starting in the north of the department, make your way slowly but surely down to Marseille. The first wonder is Les Baux-de-Provence, one of the prettiest villages in France. Then travel back in time at the Arles Amphitheatre before you are completely wowed by the Camargue countryside. Like Cézanne, you'll be enchanted by the sight of Mount Saint-Victoire before you head for a stroll along Cours Mirabeau, the main boulevard in the centre of Aix-en-Provence. End with a flourish in Marseille where its Old Port and calanques, those stunning natural creeks, are protected world heritage sites.

Provence in a day

Less than 30 kilometres from the port of Marseille, Provence is a rich tapestry of stunning scenery and traditional art de vivre. Before continuing on your cruise, take a day to explore the many ingredients that make up the eternal Provence through three iconic towns: Aubagne, Aix-en-Provence and Les Baux-de-Provence. You'll get to see the variety of Provençal architecture condensed into a day, taste sweet and savoury local specialities and admire breath-taking landscapes the colour of Bibemus stone.
