The Essential
The town is involved in the glass, metal construction and electrical industries. At a glance, from the ruins of the Château de Saint-Gérald, visitors can take in the two small churches, the town hall and River Rhône, spanned by the motorway. Les étoiles, a quarter, built between 1974 and 1981 according to Jean Renaudie's design for a working-class neighbourhood right in the city centre, is listed as an outstanding 20C heritage site.
