The villa of art and history


The Villa of the Region of art and history occupies both of the major buildings of the site : the factory itself, expanded in the 1920s and covered with asymmetrical roofs, and the owner’s residence, located to the back of it.


The reconversion of the whole site started in 2010 with the construction of the Intercommunal Media Center of the Gaves and the development of the urban area. The opening of the CAHI completes the development, which falls under the framework of the culture and heritage politic implemented by the Community of Communes of Oloron’s Foothills.
