Musée Taurin

Housed in the old Mont-de-Piété, a stone's throw from the arenas, this museum devoted to bull-fighting has more than 35,000 objects and documents, posters, costumes and tools in an area around a large patio. It takes an ethnographical approach to the theme of bull-fighting, from the breeding and rearing of the Camargue bull to the development of street games (abrivados, bandidos) or arena games (the Course Camarguaise), and the introduction of Spanish bullfighting in the mid-19C.
