Fishing for fortune

The fisherman's craft is one of the oldest there is. And has remained a fascinating experience to this very day.

Bâtiment des Forces Motrices

The Bâtiment des Forces Motrices (BFM) is a concert hall atypical to this industrial atmosphere. Situated on the Rhone, this magnificent building was first designed for industrial purposes but is now a must-visit cultural venue.
