Solar Furnace

This is a scientific research facility thats solar powered. The hillside opposite is covered with hundreds of flat mirrors that focus the sun onto the curved mirror that acts as a giant magnifying glass. The scientists basically burn things with turbocharged sunlight.

The resort of Font Romeau was also worth the visit
