Company tours

Satisfy our curiosity, answer our questions and discover a region by visiting a company. This is our starting point, our aspiration. Through company visits, all year round, here and everywhere, we invite you to rediscover the world around you, to discover its inner workings and gain in experience or expertise. Each of our visits will encourage you to take a step off the beaten track, to move the lines, to change your perspective and ” see something else to see differently “.

The town of Gardanne, with its precious vernacular heritage, is home to many treasures. Digging deep into its paradoxes, it is developing industrial tourism in the heart of its lands, 45% of which are natural areas. Throughout the year and during our events, discover the companies that have helped build the image of our city, contribute to its influence, and look forward to sharing an experiential moment with you.

Keen to promote its industrial activity, justified by the presence of the Alteo Alumina plant, Europe’s leading alumina producer, the thermal power plant supplying energy to the whole of the Aix-en-Provence region, the Malespine quarry and the Charpak microelectronics center, the Gardanne Tourist Office is committed to promoting this new type of tourism, which attracts more and more visitors every year.

The Gardanne company tour also includes the production workshops of the
Chocolaterie Riederer
which won’t reveal the secrets of the famous Trianon cake, but will show you all its know-how with passion, or the
Bossy Tilery
where more than a dozen artisans perpetuate traditions and techniques in the heart of the
Domaine de Valabre
