I stopped on my way from the airport and found the cooking to be delicious. Fresh salad, Langoustine, cheese.Entirely pleasurable. More of a bar that does great food than a restaurant. Lovely spot by the river.....great on a sunny day...and I sat on the pavement...More

Its is a free attraction and tells a bit about the bazacle, but there is not much to see there. Worth a visit if you are nearby.

We crossed the bridge away from the centre and happened across the walkway down near the dam, really powerful to hear the noise made by the water. Lovely walk which you would not get to do if you don’t cross the bridge .

We visited twice during our short stay as our 10 year old enjoyed it so much. Really informative exhibitions and clearly preparing to expand more. Interesting to see the new solar panels being installed. Great fun looking for the fish

Our tour guide walked us thru the exterior and interior of this historic site. Admission was free. The tour was informative. Highly recommend.

it's free, while the exhibitions err on the "let's praise EDF side", the site is interesting, the underground structure makes it a nice visit, and the bench outside on the terrasse overlooking the river makes it great

Le Bazacle was a series of powerful mills for grinding flour and olives in medieval times. In the early C20th it was converted into a hydro-electric power station and it still supplies power to the city as well as housing a fascinating museum.
