From the Château d’Entrecasteaux to the Gendarmerie and Cinema Museum in Saint-Tropez, from Thoronet Abbey to the Museum of the ‘Gueules Rouges’ in Tourves, from musuems to monuments, weave through the Var and travel back in time!
Monuments in the Var are discreet, modestly dotted about the exuberant, generous and fragrant countryside. Rarely having the flamboyance of a cathedral, often an unexpected gift along a walk, they always carry a real emotion.
With over 80 to choose from, the Var has an unusual diversity of museums. From the Roman relics to contemporary art, maritime history to the lives of bauxite or copper miners, from deep-sea diving to local crafts and traditions, their collections trace the history of the Var, this land between Provence and the French Riviera.
