Barrage de la Plate-Taille

Interesting
Built in 1977, this dam is impressive with its 790m-long crest and a reservoir with a 389ha surface area. At the centre of the dam, a concrete panoramic tower (107m) takes in all of the installations. The two lookouts at the top are entirely glass-paned. The underground galleries give access to the hydroelectric plant, in the heart of the dam.
