    The poet Frédéric Mistral (1830-1914) lived in Maillane, where he composed all his work; in 1904 he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. He was also the founder of the Félibrige association. The house where he lived from 1876 until his death on 25 March 1914 has retained the authentic look of Mistral's time, thanks to restoration work carried out from 1992 to 1995 by the Historic Monuments service. The house became a museum in 1944, following the death of Mme Mistral in 1943.

    The reputation of the painter Michel Jouenne is well established. He inaugurated his museum in May 2002, in a former Trinity Convent on the Saint-Rémy ring road. He chose this town because he had a house in the area for many years and it is a frequently visited town, passed through on the way to other artistic and tourist sites in the region. Michel Jouenne, who needs to be in touch with nature, has been inspired by Provence for many years.
