Le Verdon, a land of culture and traditions

Between wild landscapes, fortified cities and preserved ancient villages, the Parc du Verdon contains a rich heritage, both natural and architectural, historical and cultural. Through museums, events, gastronomy and the perpetuation of ancestral cultures such as lavender and olives, the Verdon region is committed to preserving and transmitting the strong traditions of Haute-Provence : from the tripe festival in Barjols to the truffle market in Aups, the goat floor festival in Bauduen, the saffron festival in Sillan, the patron saint festivals of Sainte-Croix-du-Verdon and the essential Provençal markets of Castellane, Régusse, Sainte-Croix, Aups, or Moustiers-Sainte-Marie.
