The village is located on Monestier-de-Clermont Township Monestier, and at an altitude of 846 m. You can welcome about 1103 inhabitants. Gresse between the valley and the Drac Valley, Monestier-de-Clermont opens Trièves. Its location on the DR 1075 made a stopover town. It is also a starting point for many walks. A union initiative created in 1907, the craze marks travelers for 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 often illuminates the surrounding peaks. The two main squares Monestier have their story. They are separated by a set of buildings called "The Great Armiraï". We do not know the meaning of this expression, but it is likely that this was in Malta Knights of the old hospital area. The arrival of the railway in 1878 was an important event for Monestier and its surroundings, it allowed 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 of Grenoble and Monestier, it included cross-country ski races 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, the listed building still exists today.
