Culture & Heritage


There’s so much to see, hear and do from the worlds of today and yesterday!


Vars is a destination brimming with history and folk traditions. Here, every aspect of culture is savoured, shared and admired.

The meeting of Alpine and Mediterranean cultures gives Vars an individual character, an art of living with a touch of the South.
Its quality of life and attractive image have as much to do with the contrast-filled beauty of its landscapes as they do with the richness of its heritage.
