History and Heritage

Evian, proud of its thermal past has preserved all the wealth of its heritage.
The Buvette Cachat, the Griffon of the Cachat Source testify to the resort’s former life and are the iconic places in Evian. Exceptional cultural sites: Villa Lumière, Palais Lumière, Maison Gribaldi, Funicular, Notre Dame de l’Assomption Church, Theatre and Casino make Evian a recognised city of culture.

A historic tour consisting of 24 stages is spread throughout the town centre. In front of each site, you will find explanatory information in French and English.
A plan is available free of charge from the tourist office (in French, English and German) which allows you to follow this tour at your own pace.
