Discover National Vanoise Park

There’s so much to learn from this land!

The history of settlement in Haute Maurienne Vanoise goes back to prehistory. These traces are still clearly visible in the Lozes archaeological park at Aussois, on the cup stones at Bonneval sur Arc and pierre aux pieds at Val Cenis Lanslevillard. Plunge into this period by visiting the archaeology museum of Val Cenis Sollières and share with your children the various workshops that are offered to you. Immerse yourself in the history of this valley through the discovery trails of the Promenade Savoyarde: “In pursuit of Hannibal”, “Les forts de l’Esseillon”.
Although Savoie has only been French since 1860, Haute Maurienne has always been a passageway to Italy, especially the road over the Mont-Cenis pass designed and built by Emperor Napoleon. Did you know that the pass was crossed by stagecoach and then by train?

Avrieux Eglise Baroque Saint Thomas Becket Yannick Bellisand

Like many high alpine valleys, religious fervour has always been omnipresent in the lives of its inhabitants. This is evidenced by the oratories, chapels and churches, most of which are part of the “Chemin du Baroque” and are listed in the National Register of Historic Monuments.
A land of combat in all eras, Haute Maurienne offers visitors its fortifications (Esseillon, Maginot Line) and means of communication (Chappe telegraph).
Architecture, science and technology are also part of our Haute Mauriennais heritage: chalets, watermills, dams and hydroelectricity, astrophysics…

In every village you will have the possibility to visit a museum, an exhibition, a place and thus add a cultural side to your holiday. Proud of the richness of our territory, of our traditions, we are happy to bring them to your knowledge and to share them with you.
