Musée de l'Empéri, de Salon et de la Crau

Salon-de-Provence | Histoire
Free Admission
The Emperi Castle is a castle fort built in the 9th century on the rock of Puech which dominates the immense plain of la Crau, in Salon-de-Provence. This castle was the residence of the archbishops of Arles as well as Germanic emperors. This is also where it takes its name (Empéri meaning Emperor in occitan). With la Fontaine moussue and Nostradamus, he became the symbol of the city.

It is today the Museum of the army in the province (annex of the Invalides in Paris) introducing very faithful representations of the different army corps from the former Regime, the Napoleonic wars until the great war. It presents also in the Museum a copy of the bed of Napoleon to St. Helena. All these parts are from the Raoul & Jean Brunon collection sold to the State in 1967. It is a Museum of history and art, through the evolution of the french uniform, doing much to the man in uniform.
