The village is located on Monestier-de-Clermont Township Monestier, and at an altitude of 846 m. You will welcome about 1103 inhabitants. Between the valley and Gresse Valley Drac Monestier-de-Clermont opens Trièves. Its location on the R & D in 1075 made a stopover town. It is also a starting point for many walks. A union initiative created in 1907, marks the craze of tourists to the region.

Monestier-de-Clermont owes its origin to the abbey founded around 1100. The word "monastery" was distorted by Monestier and Clair-Mont evokes the pure light that illuminates the peaks often neighbors. The two main squares Monestier have their histoire.Elles are separated by a complex of buildings called "The Grand Armiraï. We know the meaning of that expression but it is likely that stood on this spot the old hospital of the Knights of Malta. The arrival of the railway in 1878 was an important event for Monestier and its surroundings, allowing it to connect Grenoble to Marseille. Monestier is one of the first ski resorts in France. In 1908 a competition was organized by the Syndicat d'Initiative de Grenoble and Monestier, it included tests of skiing and ski jumping. The Tennis Club is also one of the oldest in France (1938). The exploitation of the mineral spring St. Paul will last until 1953, listed building still exists today.
