Saline Royale d'Arc-et-Senans

  • Designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1982, the Saline Royale d'Arc-et-Senans is the masterpiece of Claude Nicolas Ledoux (1736-1806), a visionary architect of the Age of Enlightenment.
  • The Royal Saltworks was created by the will of Louis XV and was built between 1775 and 1779.
  • The Royal Saltworks  functioned as an integrated factory where almost the entire working community lived. Built in the shape of an arc of a circle, it housed both housing and production facilities.
  • Made obsolete by the appearance of new technologies, the Royal Saltworks closed its doors in 1895. Abandoned, looted and damaged by a fire in 1918, the Doubs Department acquired it in 1927, thus saving it from ruin. Three successive restoration campaigns completed in 1996 restored it to its former glory.
  • The Royal Saltworks' architectural party, its history and its rehabilitation make it a unique monument in the world which is now open to the public. Exhibitions, garden festivals, concerts, researchers' residences, children's activities, conferences and innovative experiments punctuate each cultural season.
