    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.

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
