Saint-Étienne : Michelin's recommendations
Often considered to be an industrial city polluted by its coal mining industry, Saint Étienne provides a good example of successful redevelopment with its whitewashed façades, parks and attractive squares. Without turning its back on its past, the city now aims to become an important centre for design. It is keeping alive the tradition of innovation and creation, started in the 19C by the large industrial companies. The most important of which was the Manufacture des Armes (arms factory).
