  • Why support the Saline Royale

    Take part in the development of an ambitious project for a unique place included on the UNESCO World Heritage List.


    The Saline royale of Arc-et-Senans was included on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1982. It is the masterpiece of Claude Nicolas Ledoux (1736-1806), a visionary architect of the Age of Enlightenment. It is also a rare example in the history of industrial architecture.
    The architectural part of the Saline royale, its history and its rehabilitation make it a world-unique monument, accessible to everyone today.

    Regional ambitions

    Make the Saline royale a meeting place for the regional public thanks to a variety of cultural and artistic proposals.
    Make the Saline royale a place of resources for project leaders from Burgundy and Franche-Comté through its collections, its equipment and its skills (events, gardens, European projects, UNESCO).

    International ambitions

    Make the Saline royale an essential venue for heritage in Europe:

    • with the wealth of its cultural proposals (architecture, 18th century, industrial history, gardens)
    • with its place of residence at the heart of a heritage site
    • with the reputation of its artists in residence
