The Conservatory Botanical Garden LAURIS

Ranked as a "Jardin Remarquable", this botanical garden stands out for its unique character and beauty.

The beds overlook the Durance river valley and boast a wealth of botanicals - unique in Europe, these gardens are entirely dedicated to plants used for making dyes.

On the terraced gardens of the Lauris Château, embellished with fountains and basins dating from the 18th century, come discover over 300 plants traditionally used for making paint, inks and dyes for use with textiles. The visit takes approximately one hour. During the summer season, the garden is open to the public for guided visits and activities on the theme of plant dyes, for both children and adults. A resource centre displays the use of plants in colour both past and present.
