To discover, see and do...

The Centre d'exposition l'Imagier is notable for high-quality contemporary art programming, an annual group show entitled Solstice d'été and a warm reception any time of the year. Adjoining the rustic-style building housing l'Imagier is l'Imaginaire, a veritable open-air museum. This park is dotted with ten sculptures (seven of which also serve as benches) and a bandstand where musicians, dancers and actors take the stage during the summer. L'Imaginaire park will add, for your enjoyment this summer, a zen garden complementing its masterpiece, a magnificent bronze dragon Japanese fountain.
