Divonne-les-Bains, is a commune in the Ain department in eastern France. Divonne became popular as a spa in the 19th century. However many of its present-day amenities - casino, golf course, hippodrome, open air swimming pool and artificial lake (Lac de Divonne) - were built after 1945. A cultural centre by the lake was completed in 2005. Divonne hosts a small chamber music festival every summer which is centred on its tiny theatre and the Chateau de Divonne, a 19th-century hotel which overlooks the town, Lake Geneva and the French Alps beyond, from the high terrace which was the site of Divonne's medieval castle. A short way above the town there are several natural springs. These were already known to the Romans, who built an aqueduct from Divonne to Nyon to supply water to their garrison.
