The secrets of Avignon revealed

The secrets of Avignon revealed

The City of the Popes continues to fascinate as it reveals the most curious tales and secrets of its long and remarkable history. In the intimate and warm setting of L'Orsan, the wine bar of the Hotel de Cambis, let yourself be carried away by the stories told by Mattéo Marcattili, accompanied on the piano by Katsiaryna. An experience of pure delight in the heart of Avignon…


Mysterious Avignon

From the Palais des Papes to the truncated Pont Saint-Bénezet, by way of the Rue des Teinturiers, where the wheels of the mills still turn, and the beautiful stones of the Square Agricol Perdiguier, Avignon is deeply marked by history and the passage of time. Mattéo Marcattili will take you on a journey into the exciting life of this commercial and industrious city that became immersed in the heart of the mysteries of Christianity when the Popes arrived. Politics, art, religion, all the ingredients are in place to give rise to fascinating secrets.


Art de vivre in Avignon

Les Secrets d'Avignon is not a scholarly conference or a guided tour, although Mattéo Marcattili is a recognised expert in the history of medieval Avignon, the subject of his doctoral thesis. However, in the wine bar L’Orsan, Les Secrets d'Avignon offers you an immersive, exciting experience. A glass of Côtes du Rhône in hand, Châteauneuf du Pape produced at the gates of the city, or Gigondas from the foothills of Mont Ventoux, bewitched by the haunting piano accompaniment of Katsiaryna, you will enjoy a voyage into the past. Discover an art de vivre specific to Provence, mixing culture, wine and music.


The wine bar L'Orsan of the Hôtel de Cambis invites you to savour its warmth and conviviality. From tastings to immersive experiences, there is always something going on. Contact the team to find out about upcoming events here in the heart of Avignon…
