L'Espace du Lavoir

The "Espace du Lavoir" is a cultural events centre in the heart of the town of Vedène. All year long it is the site of exhibitions, special events, conferences and recitals, literary evenings and other events ...
A public washing well was mentioned for the first time in 1782, with the report of a plan for the construction of a public washing place. However, actual proof of the existence of an open washing well comes in 1832. A roof space was approved by the Prefect in 1866. Another document from 1865 states that the old basin would not be re-used as is, but was placed in a vertical position for alignment on the Chemin d’Entraigues. This latest document refers to the washing well which was built between 1866 and 1868. As of 1890, the washing well had a hydraulic mechanism that supplied the water tank on top of the village. It was rehabilitated in 1989, it is now a dynamic exhibition space and the tourism information bureau for Grand Avignon.
