With the river running through its ultramodern building, the Maison des Energies Renouvelables is a fine illustration of the meeting of nature and leisure, heritage and innovation.
As we head towards Audincthun, the pedestrian signage takes us to the heights of Fauquembergues and leads us to a monumental sculpture representing a double bass. It pays tribute to Pierre-Alexandre Monsigny, a 17th-century composer. This musician, recognized as one of the founders of opéra comique, was a native of Fauquembergues. The house where he was born can be seen in the center of the village.
Here again, treasures mingle. Here, culture and nature go hand in hand, and as a nod to this rich heritage,the sculpture stands alongside a magnificent arboretum.The alignment of trees verifies the importance of local species in the regional landscape.
