Gardanne

(a few reviews from 1 attraction)
Gardanne is a commune in the Bouches-du-Rhône department in southern France.GeographyIt is close to Aix-en-Provence and Marseille and lies on the rail link connecting the two cities.HistoryWalls dating back to the first century AD have been found.In 1454 René d'Anjou bought the estate and would go there until 1480. In 1482 it was bought back by the Forbins and in 1676 the villagers themselves bought back their own land.In the 1860s a railway was built and a little later mines were dug, thus attracting Italian, Armenian, Polish, Czech, Spanish and African workers to the village. The deep mine, one of the last surviving in France, was closed down in 2003.PoliticsThe commune of Gardanne has been controlled by the Parti Communiste Français under Roger Meï since 1977. Voting is usually towards the left-wing, although rather uncharacteristically Nicolas Sarkozy gained 53.1% of the vote in the second round of the French presidential election, 2007.Picture gallery
