Le Petit Monde de Marcel Pagnol, Aubagne, Bouches-du-Rhône (13)

Le Garlaban near La Treille, being the rock which held so much importance to Marcel Pagnol. This shot was taken from the centre of Aubagne.

A closer view shows the cross at the top more clearly.

Le petit monde de Marcel Pagnol is a recreation of Pagnol's fictional world in miniature, using santons – typically tiny Provençal figurines – to illustrate his characters.

Notice Le Garbalen in the background to the middle right at the back.
