Sorède, solar by nature!
The sundial, place Padre Himalaya in the center of the village was realized and finalized in 2013 by the artist Marc-André de Figuères on order of the Town hall of Sorède. It is a doubly symbolic sculpture: it pays homage to the origin of solar research in Sorède (work of Padre Himalaya) and scientifically indicates "true time" (solar time).
The site is freely accessible all year round, explanatory plaques on the site.
