The Museum of "Lou Marques",the marquis in Provençal language Sep 16, 2007
This Museum is located a few yards south of the church of Saintes Maries de la Mer(Notre Dame de la mer) in the heart of the Camargue and located in the former town hall.It displays collections dealing with the local history,folklore,botany, wildlife and archeological finds from the vicinity.
It is a tribute to a great man,the Marquis Folco Baroncelli-Javon,an ardent defender of the Gypsies and cowboys, who helped to keep alive the local customs.Thanks to him,the Gypsies'pilgrimage is held each year on 24th and 25th May
