Hôtel d'Agar CAVAILLON

Listed as a historical monument, with an outstanding garden and Roman temple, located at the heart of the ancient city, this stately home hosts exhibitions all year round.

A veritable curiosity cabinet combining ancient art with contemporary art, it displays prehistoric objects, archaeological excavations from antiquity and the Middle Ages, Renaissance paintings, sculptures, photographs, and installations.
At the same time, visitors can also discover Renaissance-era roofs, a 15th-century Gothic tower with gargoyles, the oldest Grecian statue discovered in Provence (550 BC, discovered on St Jacques' Hill), the oldest pharmacy equipment in France, a reliquary bust of Pope Urban V...
The garden is probably the oldest in France, since archaeological excavations have allowed us to determine that it has been there for 2000 years.
In this house and through this thousand-year journey, visitors are invited to escape and wander, letting their feelings inspire them.
