Aix-en-Provence, le Roy René
A few kilometres from the centre of the town of Aix-en-Provence, la Fabrique du Roy René opens its doors to you. Set in the middle of young almond trees, the Musée du Calisson reveals all its secrets. In this Bâtiment Durable Méditerranéen-labelled building, modernity and memories of bygone days sweep you off into the gourmet world of the calisson. Discover the hundred-year-old know-how of this family confectionery whose fame has remained alive since 1920. Wander around the sublime Roy René shop before going around the very recreational museum: digital screens and explanatory panels trace the history of the calisson which is to be eaten (almost) without moderation! Take a peek through the glass windows where you can get a glance at the work of the confectioners in the workshop.
