Albert Londres House

With its two turrets and its neo-Gothic style facade, the House attracts the eye but not only that… it also invites the mind to immerse itself in the life of a Vichyssois who made the history of journalism. It was within the walls of this house built in the 1820s that Albert Londres was born on November 1, 1884.
Albert Londres marked the history of journalism and continues to inspire our contemporaries today. What could be more natural than making the birthplace of an illustrious journalist the home of investigative journalism, as close as possible to the field.
