The Château d’Eau was built in 1823 thanks to Charles Laganne who gave 50,000 gold pieces so that "pure, clean, and potable" water would be distributed to the people of Toulouse. Around 1870, the Château d'Eau was abandoned due to insufficient capacity. In 1974, due to Jean Dieuzaide's View full description initiative The Château d'Eau opened its doors to photography. It is the oldest public institution devoted to photography in France. It has presented more than 450 exhibitions. Its program strives to present photography under all of its facets and thus it comprises the biggest artists names from photography. Le Château d'Eau is a cultural institution which enjoys an international reputation. Hide description
