POSTMAN CHEVAL’S IDEAL PALACEThe one-of-a-kind Ideal Palace built by the French postman Cheval is 45 minutes from Valence.

ROMANS SHOE MUSEUMTruly surprising and one-of-a-kind, the International Shoe Museum in Romans (Musée International de la Chaussure) holds an outstanding shoe collection showcased in an exceptional location: the former Convent of the Order of the Visitation. All types of shoes can be found there, from the oldest to the most contemporary, from classical to extravagant and exotic.
