Former Monastery Hotel
Founded by the religious order of Les Minimes in 1613, it continued to act as a working monastery until 2000. Growing and studying plants was an important part of life at the Couvent at the time. Αfter the French Revolution, the Couvent des Minimes remained uninhabited until 1862, when Canon Terrasson, archpriest of Forcalquier, turned it into a hospice. Over the years, successive residents cultivated fruit trees, grape vines, nasturtium and fuchsia plants, meaning that today its grounds still flourish.
