Telegraph Chappe Mollard Fleury

Historic site and monument in Val-Cenis

  • The Chappe telegraph is an optical telecommunications system set up by Napoleon. Located at an altitude of 2004 m on the Paris Milan line in the Vanoise National Park, the Mollard-Fleury poste (or substation) has been restored and in summer regular tours will allow you to discover its operation. Two other substations have also been restored, making it possible to send messages.
