Harmas Jean-Henri Fabre
Tourist service in Sérignan-du-Comtat :L'Harmas was owned by 19th-century writer and naturalist Jean-Henri Fabre (1823-1915), and is now a museum dedicated to his memory. When touring the house you can visit Fabre's study as well as the botanical garden, which boasts a wide range of Mediterranean trees and flora planted over nearly a hectare.
From the fallow land around his home (the origin of the word 'Harmas'), Jean-Henri Fabre created a 'field laboratory' where he could observe insects. He worked as a teacher but abandoned his interest in chemistry, maths and physics to devote himself to natural history. In 1922, the National Natural History Museum bought 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.
