    The Souléiado Museum was created in a private mansion which housed an Indian printing site from 1806. This society museum combines the history of our Provence with the traditional production of cotton fabrics. There are printed textiles with colourful motifs known as 'Indian textiles', which are now Provençal fabrics. In this museum, you will discover rare examples of Provençal costumes, wonderful stitching and charming reconstructions of former scenes from everyday life in Provence.

    In the heart of Camargue, ideally placed in the middle of rice plantations, the Rice Museum is a place steeped in history. The buildings are the birthplace of the Bongran factory, a pioneering business in the production and marketing of organic rice founded by Joseph Bon, the father of Robert. The Bongran factory joined the Heureuse Camargue Group and was moved to Gimeaux, just outside Arles. The pioneering techniques developed by Joseph and Robert Bon, such as the natural drying of rice by the Mistral, are still practised today.

    Tarascon enjoyed many privileges under the reign of the Counts of Provence. In August 1272, an Act of Charles I of Anjou, the uncle of King René, authorised the founding of a Maison de la Monnaie (Mint), thus allowing Tarascon to mint money in the same way as Tours. Coins were minted here from 1387 to 1520. During this time, a real coin and a fake coin were nailed to the door, in order to inform the population and discourage forgers. The mint ceased operation between 1518 and 1526 and between 1543 and 1591, as its activity was contested by the Provence Parliament.
