    The Retro Museum is entirely dedicated to the reproduction of scenes from everyday life in the past. This nostalgic world can be accessed via the entrance to the La Crau Ecomuseum. André Avis is an enthusiastic collector. In 1987, in partnership with the Municipality, he decided to open a museum on the theme of old professions and tools. The museum has changed name since then, but its vocation remains the same, namely to preserve and pass on the memory of the Ancients to adults and primarily to children.

    The Arlaten Museum, the departmental ethnography museum founded at the end of the 19th century by the poet Frédéric Mistral, is a 'place of memories' of Provençal society. It is the result of feelings of belonging, as expressed during the 19th century, and has helped to perpetuate them in the following century. Although the old building now focuses resolutely on the future, time has passed, leaving its mark on the buildings. The time has come for the Arlaten Museum to undergo extensive renovations, not only to the building but also scientifically speaking.

    In her studio-gallery in Les Baux de Provence, the artist Marie-Hélène Sola presents 'Fragmentism', the pictorial movement she founded in the early 1990s. A descendent of Cubism, a synthesis of two worlds - abstract and figurative - a dialogue emerging from the use of form and colour, 'Fragmentism' gathers up movement in space that goes beyond the dimensions of the canvas. Sola has chosen to transfer the visitor's attention in order to provide an understanding of an entire composition and its characteristics.

    This statue was erected in the 19th century (1867) during a Mission in the upper part of the commune, at the top of Pic Chabaud. It was the then parish priest, Father Louis Alexis, who decided to carry out the Mission. The commission to produce the statue was given to the company Vigne de Lyon, on the basis of a model created for Lourdes by Joseph Fabisch. It was exhausting work for the men, carters and horses to transport the 1,860 kg of the statue to the top of the hill.

    The 'Castrum druentioe', still called the Château of the Duc de Guise, is a former Celto-Ligurian oppidum built in a strategic location. It was fortified at the end of the Roman Empire and was a strategic point for keeping watch over the Durance Valley. A population of men-at-arms and shepherds lived at the base of the fortress. The stronghold was destroyed in the 6th century by the Visigoths, who had come to lay siege to Arles. It was rebuilt in the 11th century and became the fiefdom of the Counts of Provence.

    The Hôtel de Luppé's astonishing façade, opposite the western tower of the amphitheatre, resembles a Florentine palace. Its successive owners evoke the past of several large Arles families and testify to their great contribution to domestic architecture in the town.. Although dating from the 17th century, the only part visible from the outside is the façade erected in the early 20th century by Gaston de Luppé, the artist, scholar and Italophile.

    The first mention of bull-racing in Graveson was in July 1800. An enclosure surrounded by walls, partly within the courtyard of a privately-owned 18th century Mas, can be seen on the 1830 cadastral register. This enclosure is at the origin of the current amphitheatres. The amphitheatres have been renovated several times and were still private property in 1994. They were then managed by the Club Turin and maintained by the town hall, which took over their ownership shortly afterwards. Architectural description
