Guided tour when the sun sleeps

We thought we knew everything about our streets, our façades, our monuments, our Occitan history... We thought we knew everything about the heart of our city, the square of our village, our culture, the millenary stones, the streams and the sea... It is nothing of the sort! Because when the sun sleeps, in the evening,  we rediscover what we do not perceive during the day.

Bring your lamp, your torch, a lantern, a light, and come see what the night wants to tell us. Light streets, facades, monuments, stones, sand, nature, and follow our guide who will make you discover the heritage here as you have never seen it before. Make the light on the Occitan proverb of the shepherd in love with the stars "la bèla nuèit aluca totas las estèlas"...
