Maison de l'Alpage

The Maison de l'Alpage allows you to discover the exhibition ITINERIO on the theme "Agriculture and landscapes, the great mutations".Permanent exhibition: "Agriculture and landscapes, the great changes". The Chamonix valley is marked by a nature that men, over the centuries, have invested and shaped. From the first shepherds to today's farmers, the farmer remains the historical witness of the evolution of the landscapes and the mutations of the territory: natural spaces, architecture and urbanism, traffic and transport. Through a richly illustrated exhibition, the visitor will find the keys to discover the fragile balance between man and his environment. Temporary exhibition: "What we know about... The House of Lieutenant and Joseph Marie Devillaz". In the heart of the Hameau du Mont, one of the oldest houses in the valley still hides many questions about its life and its transformations over the centuries. This exhibition proposes to take stock of what we know today.

St Michel Castle ruins

Between 1289 and 1399, Béatrice de Faucigny built this castel on a rocky headland above the village Le Lac. This castel defended the access to the land of the priory.Built on a headland at 870 meters high, it was made of a main building of 30 meters out of 13 with a tower high of 14 meters on the south. It was a moutain fortress with a typical architecture: large walls made with stones from the river assembled with lime and a massive framework covered in wood tiles. It used to be home for a lord who was in charge of protecting the priory. Today, only one wall face with 4 arrow slits and the base of the tower still remain.
