1km from Sabres, at the heart of the Parc Naturel Régional des Landes de Gascogne, the hamlet of Marquèze takes you back in time.
The aim of this living museum is to preserve, study and pass on the heritage of the Grande Lande region. Mission accomplished !
Landais houses, airials (the area around the houses), shepherds, animals - see how local people lived in the 19th century, thanks to this life-size reconstruction of the community.
Activities like cookery, weaving and resin extracting demonstrations plunge you even further into the day-to-day life of 150 years ago.
This outdoor museum is an absolute must for children and grown-ups !
