La Petite Provence du Paradou

Le Paradou - Cultural place

One of the largest exhibitions of santons (almost 400) presented in a 500 m2 miniature Provençal village.
The best santon-makers in France have devoted almost 8,000 hours of work to making the 32 old buildings (50,000 clay tiles, all made individually by hand) in this mini Provençal village, where the santons, 1/6 of their usual size, take part in amusing or emotional scenes from everyday life.
