    "Mermaids and Fossils" evokes the period when manatees and dugongs populated the sea which covered the region. Exceptional fossils, unique in the world, are to be discovered on site, at the Col des Lèques, located in the town.

    The first level of the building is reserved for the Relais du Parc naturel régional du Verdon where you will find all the information on the territory, heritage as well as hiking and outdoor activities.
