The former Baroncelli-Javon mansion and Flandreysy-Espérandieu foundation. For five centuries, from 1469 to 1908, the Baroncelli family, originally from Florence, lived in this Gothic home, transformed into a city mansion in the 17th century. Provencal author Frédéric Mistral named the home the "Palais du Roure' in the 19th century.
Today the Palais du Roure is a centre for Mediterranean culture, specifically dedicated to Provence and Provencal history, traditions, language and literature.
Large collection of bells collected by Jeanne de Flandreysy.
