Petit Futé's opinion on BLOSSAC WATER TOWER

Vintage plate 2020

Located in a protected area, this handsome old man, built between 1887 and 1889, is one of the oldest of the French water towers still in operation. It has four huge tanks on two levels, which can hold up to 4,200 m³ of water. With its original truncated pyramid shape, it underwent a complete makeover in 2017 and its ashlar cladding, semi-circular windows and restored glass roofs are of the most beautiful effect, further enhanced by a lighting system. Notice on the pediment the coat of arms of the city with the lion of the Duchy of Aquitaine. It can be visited during the World Water Days in March. Poitiers hopes for a classification of the building as a Historic Monument.
