Château et Parc Borély

Interesting
Borély park offers vast areas of parkland and woodland ideal for long strolls, large shaded lawns, a rose garden and a botanical garden. The park also hosts major pétanque competitions. Built in the 18C by a rich merchant family, the Borélys, the château now houses the Musée des Arts Décoratifs (Art nouveau/deco furniture, earthenware and glass and contemporary pieces), de la Faïence (earthenware from Marseilles and Moustiers) et de la Mode (7,000 garments and accessories from the 1920s to the present day, exhibited in turns).
