From 5 pm : Non-guided Visit and Pre-Dinner Cocktail
Place: “L’espace EDF Bazacle”
Description :

“L’espace EDF Bazacle” is located in the heart of Toulouse, in an exceptional site, at the edge of the Garonne, close to the original ford.
From the twelfth century, this place has been surrounded by mills. Later, at the end of the nineteenth century, it has become a hydroelectric power station. Nowadays, the hydroelectric power station belongs to EDF and produces 3 000 kilowatts of electricity. It is able to provide 3 000 inhabitants with electricity.

On the 6th of June, during the “Espace EDF Bazacle” non-guided visit, you will be able to learn and understand the history of this place. In the basement, you will see the ditches where factory turbines work. Then, you will walk through several rooms where the electricity history is related. You will also visit the engine rooms located upstairs, in front of an exposition.

Finally, afterwards, a pre-dinner cocktail will be waiting for you at the patio at the edge of the Garonne. You will admire the river’s landscape as the different birds’ species surrounding the place.

(The non-guided visit and the cocktail are included in the CRYSPOM register fee.)
