The Orpellières site

The Orpellières site is unusual and unique: a former wine domain combating the natural elements, inspiring Dado, a world-renowned artist. Nowadays this protected place remains precious for the understanding of the natural state of our coastline, between dunes, salt marshes, sea and river.

We propose you to see and feel this place in a different way, by discovering plant and animal species that are related to the birth and evolution of the Mediterranean.

Guided visit while 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, we rediscover, in the dark, 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 as you never saw it before. Illuminate the Occitan proverb of the shepherd in love with the stars "la bèla nuèit aluca totas las estèlas"...
