Go to Renaison for a walk on the picturesque site of the dams.
Explore the park, the birthplace of tap water in Roanne, and explore the buildings to discover breathtaking views!

Discover the secrets of water and the importance of its preservation through an exhibition and playful manipulations within the Maison de l'eau. 8 stages address different themes around water: The water cycle, the water in our body or the use of water in our daily lives...

You will also be able to appreciate the large format photos of the photographer Vincent Poillet.
Immerse yourself in the world of water with the mishmash, funny and quirky series, played by the actors of the Kaamelott series, Franck Pitiot and Jacques Chambon.

Browse the educational footbridge along the factory which presents the production of drinking water.

Finally, on the edge of the Chartrain dam (de la Tâche), stands the tallest tree in Europe, all varieties combined. This is the Douglas president which measures more than 70 m high.
