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.
