Jean Moulin in Eygalières, Bouches-du-Rhône (13)

Jean Moulin (1899–1943) is a great French résistance hero who was baptised in Saint-Andiol (Bouches-du-Rhône), the village where his parents came from. His sister, in Jean Moulin's name, bought the maset in Eygalières, not a great distance from Saint-Andiol, in September 1940. The maset is about two kilometers from the village, and as the above sign says, driving here is strictly limited to locals or authorised vehicles.
