The hills of Marcel Pagnol
Writer, playwright, moviemaker and producer, Marcel Pagnol has painted the portrait of an authentic and colorful Provence. La gloire de mon père, Le Château de ma mère, Le temps des secrets and Le temps des amours, in particular, recount his childhood at La Treille in the Garlaban Hills. From Garlaban to the caves of Les Pestiférés, from the Château de la Buzine to Aubagne, go and meet the memories of Marcel Pagnol.
The Sainte-Baume massif is located near Peypin. Its landscapes, fauna and flora are protected by a regional nature park. Hiking and mountain biking are among the most popular activities. You can also discover an exceptional cultural and spiritual heritage, with for example the visit of the troglodyte church built in the cave that gave its name to the massif.
