Lapidary museum - archaeological collection of the Fondation Calvet

Interesting
Behind the Baroque façade of the Jesuit college chapel visitors can admire the archaeological collection of the Calvet museum, which includes the Noves "Tarasque" (a monster from Celtic tradition), Greek and Greco-Roman statues, portraits of emperors or simple folk, low-reliefs, sarcophagi, and masks excavated at Vaison-la-Romaine. A fascinating visit for those interested in archaeology.
