At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

A Provencal tradition.

At the bottom of a garden planted with olive trees, lavander and oleanders, the Maison Fouque smells of the essence of Provence. It is here that for four generations, the traditional Provencal art of making santons, or Christmas nativity scene figurines has continued.

After marvelling at the processes involved in the marking of these figurines by hand (modeling, smoothing, kiln firing, and painting), you can stroll around and visit the shop where you can pick up some santons to take home as a souvenir. The Fouque santons are collected and treasured all around the world.

All year round, themed temporary exhibitions are held at the Maison Fouque.
