UNESCO : Espace de l'urbanisme horloger, La Chaux-de-Fonds

"I get off at La Chaux-de-Fonds station. It’s 1.35. A bit lost, I go out of the building and see a big sign. Phew! I’m saved! The sign tells me to follow the red line to an information point. Ten minutes later, I’m at quite a surprising place… What a scatterbrain I am, La Chaux-de-Fonds was classed as a UNESCO world heritage site and I’d forgotten! That’s why there’s this exhibition. The many images and explanations on the walls remind me what makes this site so different from others: town planning based on the clock-making industry... That’s the answer! There’s even a film on the subject projected on the floor! Shame, no time to watch it this time, my guided tour is about to leave".
