Overview

Countess Pastré bequeathed this magnificent 19th century country house to the city along with 120 hectares of wooded parkland, located between La Pointe-Rouge and the Rolland caves, extending up to the Marseilleveyre hills. The park has for the most part been transformed into a public garden, including an adventure playground near the entrance to delight and entertain your children who can, amongst other things, enjoy a bicycle or pony ride. Since 1996, it has been home to an exceptional earthenware museum, displaying a diverse collection as well as an exhibition depicting the technical and artistic development of this craft.
