Qype: Bimont Dam in Aix en Provence

Aix en Provence

Wow! What a fantastic dam. Forget Cezanne and Picasso and the Mont St Victoire, if you're in Provence why not visit the site of some serious civil engineering instead? It was built by Joseph Rigaud between 1946 and 1951 and stores up to 40 million cubic metres of water. It's no 3 gorges, but it's certainly more pretty.
