This listed building, a former mill of the Princes of Condé, is the heart of the hydraulic system which was used to convey water to the fountains and the water jets in the gardens designed by André Le Nôtre.

Experience the evolution of the mechanism over 3 centuries by activating an impressive XNUMXth century wooden wheel and then plunging into the industrial revolution to the sound of XNUMXth century machinery.

The height of modernism, the Pavilion also houses the Duke of Aumale's laundry, fully mechanized, a real curiosity that remained in operation until the 1970s.
