Overview

Frontignan is most famous for its sweet Muscat wine, a popular Mediterranean aperitif. There are also fine sandy beaches particularly Plage des Aresquiers. However, to truly get to know the town, a visit to this museum is required. The town owes its name to Frontinius, a landowner during Roman times. After Guilhem de Montpellier, the town passed under the rule of the kings of Aragon. The museum exhibits prehistoric finds from the area as well paintings from the French and Flemish schools. It also displays diverse objects related to the art of winemaking. The museum is housed in a former chapel which dates from 1585.
