Performing Arts Venue
“Parce que c'est un lieu superbe proche des quais, à l'ombre des platanes sur la place St Croix et de son église romane classée au Patrimoine mondiale de l'Unesco. Des petits bars et restaurants où il est possible d'écouter de la musique de qualité, Jazz notamment. Parce que la programmation du théâtre TNBA dirigé par Catherine Marnas est tout à fait riche. Because it is a superb place near the docks, in the shade of plane trees on the Place St Croix and its Romanesque church classified World Heritage of Unesco.
