Sisteron lamb - Tourism in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence

Benefiting from the Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) and the Label Rouge (Red Label) quality marks, Sisteron lamb is famous for its fine, tender and tasty meat. The "Sisteron Lamb" appellation is only granted to lambs from Merino Arles, Mourérous and South Pre-Alp ewes nursed by their mothers for at least two months in the region around Sisteron.

Rack of lamb with garlic, leg of lamb and grilled lamb chops with Herbes de Provence make delicious dishes for gourmets.

Every Ascension weekend, a Fête de l'Agneau (lamb festival) is organised in the town of Sisteron.
