Visit the French Foreign Legion Aubagne

Our signature tour of the French Foreign Legion Aubagne.

The FRENCH FOREIGN LEGION is a worldwide myth.
Because of its history, its structure, its identity, its unique rules, the Legion is unlike any other army corps in the world. Present on all fronts for nearly 200 years it is of course a privileged witness and actor of the world history.

With us discover the unique and fascinating universe of the French Foreign Legion.

It will start with the visit of the splendid LEGION MUSEUM. Located in the historic headquarter of AUBAGNE it is, without doubt, a must for any military buff.
From room to room you will travel from one continent to another, going back in time, before reaching the Holy of Saints. Once in awhile it’s good to travel with the Legion.

... and its winery in Puyloubier.

After that you will continue with the vineyard of the Legion in Puyloubier and its Institution of the Invalides, where we suggest to enjoy a lunch at “la popotte” (not included but must be booked in advance, please let us kbnow).
By the time you reach Puyloubier it will be the time to discover the excellent organic Côtes de Provence wine produced here. 

As you will notice the Legion never abandon his own, accompanying them until the end.
As a matter of fact it is the right place to buy products and souvenirs “made in Légion” by the legionnaires of the institution.
You will then stop at
the “carré militaire” of the local graveyard. At this point you will face the unique destiny of some Legends burried here, such as the Prince Aage of Danemark, Corporal Siegfried Freytag, General Paul-Frédéric Rollet and others.

In addition you will discover the splendid countryside of the SAINTE-VICTORY mountain.
