TOWN PRESENTATION

At the heart of the Oisans, near the Ecrins National Park, the town of Mont-de-Lans is one of two cities that make up the resort of Les 2 Alpes. Access is from Grenoble by RD 1091 along the Romanche valley through the villages of Livet- et- Gavet Bourg d'Oisans and as well as the High -Oisans via municipality of La Grave.


SIGHTSEEING

  • Roman Gate Coupons :
  • The Roman Gate Bons is located below the hamlet of Warrants, in the municipality of Mont-de-Lans on the way down to Bourg d'Oisans and Chatelard. It is a monumental arch carved into the rock, the tool marks are clearly visible on one of the walls. A half arch, an opening of 3 meters and a boom 1 dominates the meter. At ground level, its width is 2 m 50, a seat 50 cm high the borders on both sides. A cornice elegantly emphasizes the birth of the arc. Soil is a very smooth rock on which is clearly very different two deep grooves, 6-15 cm, and with a spacing ranging from 1 m 41-1 m 48 In many places the road, these traces are found.
  • The presence of this book worked in the countryside, away from home raises many questions. Sculptors who carved certainly wanted to mean something, the current assumption is that it symbolizes the halfway between Grenoble and Briancon, and could also serve as a toll station. Héricart Thury reports two doors under the Notes, in the early 19th century. The second, downstream, would have collapsed very early, but when visiting Florian Vallentin in 1876 and 1877, he reveals that he noticed the remains of this second door, 50 meters downstream. The cadastre of Mont-de-Lans seems to have preserved the memory, since the place called is called " Doors " and not the door.
  • Florian Vallentin Mont-de-Lans also note the presence of a bank of rocks, carved by human hands, " at the foot of Calvary " evidencing that the transition from the Roman road in this place.
  • The Roman Gate Good is listed as historical monuments by order of April 10, 2014.
  • Chasal Lento Museum :
  • House traditions and arts of Mont de Lans, Municipal Museum, opened in 1993, it aims for the conservation and presentation of objects of the old life in Oisans. In the old rectory restored, six rooms with different themes await you behind a big old door.
  • In the first two, there are two permanent exhibitions where you guide the votes of locals. Listen, you go into their privacy. They evoke activities, there is little, still practiced in many Oisans. The second is the reconstruction of a stable, sheltering agricultural tools.
  • Upstairs, you will fly over the territory of Mont-de-Lans and will be presented to the famous hawkers Uissans. You will also visit the Chambon dam and its hamlets swallowed.
  • The attic is reserved for temporary exhibitions after : Master Prints painted by residents, the Hawking, De l'Alpe in Les Deux Alpes, Mont-de-Lans and Hamlets, The sun has a rendezvous with the moon, Mont L ' 2000 Gateway Lane and Roman Oisans.
