This site is an research center focusing on experimental solar energy. It includes a interesting, though basic museum (with English handout) and a film with an English version. The guide went out of his way to help me understand the site because I do not speak French (my partner who was with me speaks limited French). After the museum the guide showed us several experiments with the solar furnace. This site is incredibly unique and according to those present is the first and largest facility of this type in the world (and probably one of the only ones that can be toured).
