Place of conservation of the historical archives of the City and temporary exhibition space, the Maison Gribaldi is one of the last vestiges of old Evian.
Built at the time of the Renaissance, it retains mullioned windows topped by accolade lintels, a wooden gallery replaced identically during the 2013 renovation-extension and a beautiful stone spiral staircase inside. Leaning against the ramparts that surrounded the city, it probably belonged to Vespasien de Gribaldi, a friend of François de Sales, and former archbishop of Vienne in France, who gave it his name. It may have been an outbuilding of his nearby manor house on the corner of the upper street.
The historical and iconographic archives will be digitised and accessible to all from computer workstations. A valuable educational tool for research, schools and the public.
On the programme from 16 July to 6 November 2022 :
Exhibition "Contemporary glass art" around the Denise and Marcel Heider collection".
