Aix-les-Bains, city of water... Not only does it have its feet in the water, that of the Bourget lake, but it has built its reputation on its assets linked to thermalism since Antiquity. It officially became the 1st thermal spa of France after the war. Its history cannot be dissociated from that of the biggest natural lake of glacial origin in France. It is also home to the largest freshwater marina in France, with 1,500 moorings between the Petit and Grand Port. Its sulphurous waters treat rheumatism and respiratory problems, attracting many patients. With the lake and the mountains, its tourist and sporting assets are numerous. Rich of its history, the city tells itself through its monuments and cultural events. The Aquarium, the Faure museum, the casino, the thermal baths, the hippodrome, the castle of La Roche du Roi, the golf course are as many remarkable sites for this city of Art and History. The seaside resort and spa are still among the most romantic destinations, which pays tribute to Alphonse de Lamartine, poet and writer who left his mark on the city.
