Carte & Points d’intérêt

J'y vais


Saint-Pierre chapel marks the beginning of your journey. The sounds of the alpine herds echo the marmots' whistles in the distance. The terrace of the 2000 trail seems to trail off to infinity. In the background, the regal Roche d'Étache cuts the horizon. The stage is set for retracing the military history of Col du Mont Cenis. Give in to the temptation of taking various scenic breaks, made easy by the gentle terrain. Gain a little more height as you overcome the only difficulty of the day and then, take your seat! At almost 2,300 m of altitude, this circular fort is an infallible observation post! Though peace and quiet have reigned here for over half a century, you can still feel the weight of history. As far as the eye can see, ridges draw jagged lines across the sky, reflected in the turquoise waters of the lake. There's no doubt about it: the horizon is all yours!
