In a bucolic atmosphere, you will learn about the story of this emblematic flower, its colors, shapes, scents, and its virtues.


You will know everything there is about old roses - Rosa Gallica, Rosa Damascena, Rosa Alba, Rosa Centifolia, hybrid tea roses - and modern roses which flower until autumn.

You will start the visit by one of the town's strongest symbols. The "Rosa Gallica Officinalis", also called "
Rose of Provins" has been brought back from crusades by Count Thibaud IV of Champagne.


This ancestor of all our present-day varieties was formerly renowned for its medicinal properties.

A place is specially reserved to the red rose trees along the Durteint River.
Every year, new scented rose trees are planted.
