"To discover this garden is to feel some of the emotions experienced by a botanist explorer who surveys the planet!"

The Domaine du Rayol offers you: exhibitions, guided tours "discovery", thematic tours, activities for families, workshops-training, celebration of seasonal changes, festival of plants, marine trail and musical evenings (classical music and Mediterranean) in summer .
