The ex-votos of Saint-Paul Collegiale church
During the restoration works on the interiors of Saint-Paul Collegiate Church, the ex-votos have been preserved outside the church, and some of them have been restored. They are now resettled in the narthex, on a single wall, so that people can see this exceptional collection at a glance.

Villa Carmignac new exhibition
The Villa Carmignac opened in 2018 (2000 m2) and showcases exhibitions under a former vineyard on Porquerolles island.
For its 2020 season, Fondation Carmignac has invited American curator and writer Chris Sharp to organise its forthcoming exhibition at Villa Carmignac on the island of Porquerolles, France.
Entitled “La mer imaginaire” (‘The imaginary sea’), this project will transform the villa into an underwater natural history museum, questioning the interactions between our civilization and the marine world. Visitors will dive into an aquatic ecosystem, navigating fascinating representations and marine creatures, both dreamy and threatening at once.
“La mer imaginaire will not only consider how artists are re-evaluating our relationship with nature, but also examine how nature, particularly the sea, sparks our imagination.” Chris Sharp
The walk of l’Ayguade
Everyone loves a walk along the seashore right ? In June last year, Hyères launched a brand new ( and superb ) promenade ( 1.8 km ) from l’Ayguade to the port. Come and enjoy an ice cream on square Daviddi where you’ll find pétanque players or families returning from the beach… While going for a walk ( or excercice it’s up to you! ) you’ll love beautiful views of the Mediterranean sea…
