The "Village des Santons en Provence" is a combination of 19 villages in a continuous scenery.

3,000 santons -iconic symbol of Provence- are staged in villages, hills, garrigue, calanques, ...
The type or size of these clay figurines used varies according to the scenery.
They are represented in Provençal Playlets : working in the fieds or in shops, dancing, playing cards or petanque, cooking, fishing,...
