Often considered to be an industrial city polluted by its coal mining industry, Saint Étienne, without turning its back on its past, is however a shining example of successful redevelopment with whitewashed façades, parks and attractive squares. The city has won its bid to become a centre for design, thus keeping alive the tradition of innovation and creation launched in the 19C by the large industrial companies, the most important of which was the Manufacture des Armes (arms factory).
