Come to visit the Galerie Hydraulica through a guided tour about the science and the industrial heritage of an alpine valley, at the heart of the Vanoise mountains.
Located at the foot of a giant pressure pipeline which its' water from the glaciers around, the Galerie Hydraulica will unfold the secrets behind hydroelectricity and its use in metallurgy and chemistry.
Light will be shed on the paramount role hydoelectricity played in developping the valleys as early as the 19th century, much before the skiing resorts came onto the scene.
In this ancient electrobus garage, through the moving testimonies of local inhabitants, one is reminded of the importance the Villard plant (closed down in 1984) once had, in their daily lives.
This guided tour will unfold all about this history...
