Ôkhra - Écomusée de l'Ocre
The tourist service at 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 a former 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. Open all year round.
The OKHRA Association is open to both the public and professionals for guided tours, training sessions, and educational workshops for children during the school year and vacation, conferences, practical advice on how to use the hues.
Temporary exhibitions are also available. See what’s scheduled, at the web site: www.okhra.com
There’s also a boutique, numerous books on colours, flasks of pigments, binders, gums and more.
You can rent bikes on the spot and head out to explore the village of Roussillon and the ochre landscapes of the Luberon.
