The village of Chooz, that you have to pronounce 'chô', became famous, thanks to the history of the French nuclear industry. It is in the sixties that Frenchmen and Belgians have established there the largest experimental nuclear power station of Europe . In 21th century, the nuclear industry is still taking part in the history of Chooz with the setting up of the Centre of Nuclear Electricity Production (Chooz B - 2 production units of 1450 MW each).
But Chooz, it is not only the nuclear industry ... it is also an heritage to discover.
You will be charmed by the square of the village and by the Saint-Remi church, where you will notice, in a niche just above the entrance, the blue stone statue of the saint.
Chooz, it is also the art: The statue "The Fire" by Paul Rebeyrolle. Monumental sculpture in bronze and cast iron of aluminum of 6 metres hight which seems to watch over the landscape as a totem. But, it is also, in the heart of the village, three statues of Charles Gadenne. .
Chooz of yesteryear... Chooz today... You will not forget easily the image of this beautiful village.
