Interesting insight into the use of the weir here on the river Garonne, over the centuries, but concentrating on the hydro-electricity produced here for more the 120 years. I enjoyed eating my picnic lunch on the terrace!

You could see Garonne in full flow. The best view is when you go on the bridge. The views are spectacular.

Its is a free attraction and tells a bit about the bazacle, but there is not much to see there. Worth a visit if you are nearby.

We crossed the bridge away from the centre and happened across the walkway down near the dam, really powerful to hear the noise made by the water. Lovely walk which you would not get to do if you don’t cross the bridge .

We visited twice during our short stay as our 10 year old enjoyed it so much. Really informative exhibitions and clearly preparing to expand more. Interesting to see the new solar panels being installed. Great fun looking for the fish
