Moulin d'Alphonse Daudet

Fontvieille - Monument

Built in 1814, the Saint Pierre Windmill ground wheat for a century until 1915. In 1935, the Society of Friends of Daudet's Windmill decided to turn it into a museum dedicated to Alphonse Daudet and containing the poet's works. This windmill has been visible from the outside since 2012, but the inside cannot be visited as it has been closed by its owner.
