Harmas Jean-Henri Fabre Gardens
Tourist service in Sérignan-du-Comtat :The famous entomologist Jean-Henri Fabre (1823-1915) moved to this house in Sérignan in 1879. He dedicated his life to the study of insects and flora, and his garden became his laboratory. Today, his garden is classified as a 'Jardin remarquable' (Remarkable garden).
In 1922, the National Natural History Museum purchased the entire estate. The collections left by the scientist include fossils and minerals, manuscripts, printed material and a few boxes of insects. There are also two exclusive collections - watercolour paintings of mushrooms and an exceptional herbarium.
