Things to see and do

Pralognan-la-Vanoise is a real village with a history of old neighborhoods and traditions. Do not miss the listed villages of the Cross of Fontanettes or Prioux but the alpine cheese, traditional festivals throughout the summer.

A lecturer guide you will discover the secrets of the village, the inevitable, and will introduce you to a tasting of local products ...

Do not forget to visit the Cross, a hamlet of Pralognan. It includes an old village where a few years ago, cows were on the ground floor and the people upstairs. Talk to the elders, they are reticent on the customs, anecdotes of yesteryear. The génépi and gentian fragrant in their cabins. It is pleasant to walk the steep streets with floating calm and authenticity.
