The Cité is a place dedicated to gastronomy and wine, housing innovative exhibitions about gastronomy, a "gastronomic village" where local producers will offer the best selection of products, a wine house with more than 200 references, restaurants under the direction of the famous Chef Eric Pras...the key words will of course be : gastronomy and excellence.
