Fame Lourmarin is partly due to its gastronomy, Reine Sammut, woman leader since 1975, is decorated with a Michelin star. Lourmarin is also famous for two great writers of the twentieth century who lived Lourmarin and are buried there. This is of course Albert Camus (La Peste, the Stranger) and Henri Bosco (The Child and the River, Donkey Brief).
