Musée Taurin : Michelin's recommendations

Housed in the old Mont-de-Piété a stone's throw from the arenas, this museum has more than 35 000 objects and documents, posters, costumes and tools in an area opened up by a large patio. It takes an ethnographical approach to the theme of bullfighting, from the breeding and rearing of the Camargue bull to the development of different street games (abrivados, bandidos) or arena games (the Course Camarguaise), and the introduction of Spanish bullfighting in the middle of the 19C.
