    • La Maison Carrée, a Renaissance mansion, takes you into a timeless atmosphere. You will wander between corridors and covered galleries of another time, you will contemplate the harmony of volumes, you will discover the history of the region and you will surprise temporary exhibitions. The Museum of Industry is devoted to the contemporary period.

      From the end of the 18th century to the present day: techniques, know-how and textile productions around the main themes of wool (beret, Pyrenees wool, capulet...), linen (Basque linen, sneakers...) or hemp.

      You will learn that the furniture factories have even furnished the salons of the Titanic or the palaces of the Near East. That our peasants of the piedmont did not content themselves with plowing their fields but made in workshops the famous boxwood pearls intended for rosaries from Lourdes or... from Mecca!

      July-August open daily from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. / 2.30 p.m. to 6.30 p.m.
      other periods: Tuesday to Saturday 10 am-12pm / 3 pm-6pm.
      • Closed from December 25 to February 22 / from March 7 to April 11.
      • Closed on public holidays except July 14 and August 15.

      • Free access to the Renaissance courtyard all year

    Beautiful, small and charming collection which is well displayed in a nicely restored location. If there would be a bit more storytelling and contextual info, this would be a top location to visit.

    Un véritable écrin ou l'on peut admirer des expositions artistiques de premier choix. De plus, la place vient d'être restaurée. A voir.

    On ne s’attend pas, en pénétrant dans la cour, découvrir une si belle demeure de style renaissance. On imagine bien la richesse des habitants de l’epoque.
