Saint Remy-de-Provence Museums
Saint Remy-de-Provence has a great selection of museums to visit and tours to take. A good start would be to visit the Office de Tourism, in the paking lot just south of the old town (a 5-minute walk out Ave Pasteu or Ave Durand Maillane). You can pick up maps and brochures, and check on the times of the next guided tours.
