A global symbol of France's solar energy, the Grand Four Solaire d'Odeillo is located in the commune of Font Romeu Odeillo Via en Cerdagne, in the department of Pyrénées-Orientales (Eastern Pyrenees), in the South of France.
The site was chosen for two main reasons:
-the amount and quality of its direct sunlight (around 2750 h/year)
- the purity of its atmosphere.
The Grand Four Solaire d'Odeillo has become a laboratory for the CNRS, where solar energy is in the service of science, and science is in the service of energy the environment, industry and space.
Joint with the Pyrénées 2000 ski area, Font-Romeu offers 40 pistes including 15 green runs, 9 blue runs, 8 red runs and 8 blacks. There are 23 ski lifts.
Font-Romeu ski resort is good for beginners as well catering to the fearless. While families enjoy the play area for kids and beginners, the more daring types can have a go at the ramps, jumps and half pipes in the snow park.
Through the Treaty of the Pyrenees, France gained 33 villages in Cerdanya. Louis 16th was anxious to ensure the security of the area, and therefore gave Vauban the responsibility of establishing a citadel. The site's location was a strategic point in the triangular zone and made bringing in supplies and equipment easier.
Soldiers, enlisted as construction workers, made it possible to finish the work just 29 months after Vauban first came to the site.
Besides being quite representative of the ingenious defence structures designed by Vauban, the Mont-Louis citadel gives visitors the chance to discover the first oven that used solar energy.
