The parish priest of Cucugnan
For 1000 years, the heart of Provence has been beating at the Château de La Barben. For 1000 years the history of France has been written at the foot of its rock. A thousand years that its stones have been telling the great stories of our ancestors. At Rocher Mistral, travel to a land where grandiose historical spectacles and extraordinary emotions are born. Take part in the naval adventures of Claude de Forbin, join in the sumptuous balls of the great Provençal families and tremble during the terrible Cascavèu revolt.
As you enter the castle of La Barben, you hear voices and battles. It rumbles with ancient revolts and cannon fire. It even seems that in its basements you can smell the sea, the port of Marseille and the seas of England. At the Rocher Mistral, meet the great heroes and events that made the history of France and Provence. Thanks to immersive and original shows, immerse yourself and your family in a unique experience, in the heart of the oldest medieval castle in Provence.
This is the hour when a twilight sky rises over the castle of La Barben. The hour when stories and men of the past awaken. The hour of magical shows, where you can relive the happy days of a Provence in celebration. At dusk, plunge into an enchanting universe and enter a world where the scents of lavender, the lights of the sunset and traditional Provencal songs merge.
