Arc-et-Senans is famous for its UNESCO World Heritage Site, the royal saltworks designed by architect Claude-Nicolas Ledoux, who built them from 1775 to 1779. This grandiose complex, on a semi-circular plan, housed both the workshops and workers' housing. Even though the saltworks never functioned perfectly (production was abandoned in 1895), it remains a flagship of French industrial architecture.
