European Geothermal Museum (Unique)

Géothermia is unique in France because at Chaudes-Aigues the warmest water in Europe (82°C) flows naturally. Starting from the ancestral use of the waters by the inhabitants, the visitor is invited to an initiatory journey to discover geothermal energy, an energy that man knew how to use long before coal, oil or nuclear power. Thanks to this natural wealth, it is here, in Chaudes-Aigues, that the first district heating network was created in 1332, at a time when pipes were made of wood. Built on three levels, in one of the oldest houses heated by geothermal energy, on the initiative of Mr. Georges Barthomeuf and Pierre Raynal (former deputy mayor at the time), Géothermia takes visitors on a journey of discovery through the history of Chaudes-Aigues, the use of hot water and geothermal energy in Europe, the world and in space.
