Heritage, border zone
Long before the ski resort, there was a hamlet, the hamlet of Charmaix. A shrine with a chapel housing a black virgin where a pilgrimage takes place on the first Sunday in September.
The mountain pastures of the Thabor massif stretch between France, Italy and the department of Hautes Alpes. If you’re following the GR5 great hiking trail to Nice, stop off at the Thabor refuge, on your right at the Vallée Etroite pass.
