  • Situated in the village of Cilaos, Zafer Lontan runs an art gallery offering an exhibition and sales of engravings, sculptures and paintings. The private museum retraces the heritage of Cilaos through old objects.

    From humble dishes cooked in a wood-fired oven to the history of the sedan chair, visitors are transported back through time. Discover the ""temps lontan"" (Old Times) with emotion and wonder. The ""LOREDA"", available upon reservation, shows a film of old comic strips, video-recorded testimonies of elderly people and a mini-conference on objects through space and time, all accompanied by tastings of locally roasted coffee and cake.The sessions are presented by the artist himself.
    Open on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday from
    10 a.m. to 12 a.m. and from 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Close on Tuesday and Sunday.
