Discover Vanoise National Park

There’s so much to learn from this land!

Populations have settled in Haute Maurienne Vanoise since prehistoric times. Their traces are still clearly visible in the Lozes archaeological park at Aussois, on the cup stones at Bonneval sur Arc and the footprint stone at Val Cenis Lanslevillard. Plunge into this period by visiting the archaeology museum of Val Cenis Sollières and share moments with your children at the various workshops available. Immerse yourself in the history of this valley on the Promenade Savoyarde discovery trails, “In pursuit of Hannibal” and “The Esseillon forts”.

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 later by train?

Avrieux Eglise Baroque Saint Thomas Becket Yannick Bellisand

As in many high Alpine valleys, religious fervour has always been omnipresent in the lives of the 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 inventory of historic monuments.
Haute Maurienne, a land of combat in every era, invites visitors to discover its fortifications (Esseillon Forts, Maginot Line) and means of communication (Chappe telegraph).
Architecture, science and technology are also part of the Haute Maurienne heritage: chalets, watermills, dams and hydroelectricity, astrophysics…

In every village you will find a museum, exhibition or site to visit, and thus add a cultural dimension to your holiday. Proud of the richness of our land and traditions, we are happy to tell you about them and share them with you.
