Ôkhra - Conservatory of ochres and color, Roussillon

To better understand the industrial adventure of ochre which completely transformed the Vaucluse landscape from Roussillon to Rustrel in “Provencal Colorado”, you really must visit the Conservatory in the former Mathieu Factory. Here everything is still ochre-coloured, from floor to ceiling. The contrast between the earthy colours and the hues of the pines is stunning and beautiful.
