La Pierre Merlière
5.1 km

La Pierre Merlière

From La Motte d'Aveillans, this short hike towards Pierre Merlière, a local legend, can be supplemented by a visit to La Mine Image museum. From the car park, head towards the Mine-Image museum, pass in front of a fountain, then the mine baths. Continue on rue d'Aveillans until the stop sign. Turn right into rue du Mas to arrive at rue de pierre Merlière. Cross the hamlet of Mas. Leave the path going up to the left at the first sign "Le Mas". Continue until you reach a small square which will lead to the second sign "Le Mas". Take the path straight ahead which climbs through the undergrowth towards "La Pierre Merlière" which is reached fairly quickly. Continue on a steep path until the sign "Le Rattier". Turn left towards "Côte Belle". Continue downhill, pass the "Les Vernes" crossroads, on the left, leave the thematic path on the water. Travel about 80 m to reach the fountain. Continue downhill and take the road to the left following the La Mure railway line. Join the outward route via rue d'Aveillans to find the starting point. The Legend: The name of Pierre Merlière would come from Merlin the enchanter because the legend says that we practiced human sacrifices on this altar as evidenced by the hollow imprint on the top. Right next to this hollow there is a round shape to accommodate the person to be sacrificed as well as a vertical gutter along the rock to evacuate the victim's blood. But far from all that, we are facing a rock in which several millstones have been cut. We find two in the lower part abandoned during the size following the appearance of a defect, in reality it would seem that a single millstone was extracted from this rock, hence the hollow imprint visible on the top. The rocks likely to give good grinding stones were rare in the region (it needed hardness and sufficient resistance to abrasion to obtain a good grinding wheel) the slightest rock likely to be suitable was immediately exploited to supply the mills of the region . This is how the millstone became the Merlière stone.

Grand Serre au Taillefer running tour
7.4 km

Grand Serre au Taillefer running tour

It´s a great challenge to reach the top of Taillefer which is 2857 m high. Please Keep in mind that you are in a very rich but fragile area. We recommend you to stay on the main trail and not cross wetlands, in order to not create other paths. This is the best : higher running route of all trail running stations, with its highest point at Taillefer's summit, 2857m high. This high montain running tour should not be done with bad weather. You can divide the tour and stop at the station right after the Grand Serre climbing, as a little red level tour. You can also getting down at the Pas de la Mine, avoiding the last tour to the Taillefer summit. You can either go straight from the station to the Taillefer, it is a red level tour as well. If you make it all, it is a black level tour. There are some dizzying part in the last loop from the Pas de la Mine to the summit of Taillefer : you need to be used to trail running. 50m before the Pas de la Mine, take the little path on your right side, marks are there (sometimes without N°3), but the path may have only little trace. Cairns and white and blue traces guide you, please pay attention to them, especially the Lemay lake area that you have to bypass on the left bank. O nce at the pass, it is a return-trip to the top on the same way. Please mind your steps on the little path following the ridge on the way back. On your way, you'll find amazing view points, from Grand Serre dizzying ridge, in the climb to Taillefer, to end to an absolutely breathtaking panorama from the top of the Taillefer, over all Grenoble and Valbonnais region, as well as Oisans, Ecrins, Belledonne, Chartreuse and Vercors ranges.

Museum of the French Revolution

The castle shelters the museum of the French Revolution since 1984. The collections gather pieces of art such as paintings, drawings, sculptures and engravings. On July 21st 1788, the castle of Vizille entered History. The Etats Généraux of the Dauphiné meeting which had been forbade by Grenoble authorities had been thus sheltered by Claude Perrier. Seduced by the liberal ideas, his castle sheltered this meeting. 187 members of the Tiers Etats, 49 clergymen and 159 noblemen deliberated during 16 hours. In demanding the meeting of the Etats généraux this event is considered to have triggered the Revolution. The Salle du jeu de paume which was the witness of this event have burnt during the fire of 1865. Its implantation is now symbolised by a terrace planted with trees at the entrance of the museum.

Valentine's House

Valentine's House

Beautiful remain of endemic habitat. Valentine's house (name of the last inhabitant of the house) is the only remaining building that has not been deeply rebuilt. In fact , from the 1860s until the 1914 war, demography has been very strong, thanks to better hygiene and more mixing between valleys. Life expectancy of our people became longer and infant mortality decreased. As a result, they had to extend their cultivated area, to grow their herds and rearrange houses to accomodate people and animals. So all houses were raised with one floor extra. The granary became bedroom and got larger. The room that usued to be an only room for every purpose (kitchen, bedroom, leaving room) didn't exist anymore. Let's have a look on this house. Some experts have given a name to this kind of lying small height houses : vessel farms. Everything has been designed to face long winter months : small openings, minimum windages, and everything on board : food, people and animal to face rude weather. This house actually is 2 houses or rather 2 fires. This is the way the houses were called when 2 families were living there. Each one had its fireplace (cooking fire). On east side, a marvelous step-gable remains. the step-style shape make the structure stronger against wind and the granary more waterproof so fodder is not damaged. This gable is much higher than the roof which is nowadays made with slate or corrugated iron. The difference in height reminds us that the roofs used to be covered by 30 cm thatch. If you look by the openings, you can understand the way the rooms were arranged. · Through the first window you can see the "paele" , that room was used to store food and be workshop. · The second window belongs to the Unique room, a small room to avoid the cold and closed by woods and bars · The unique room door is still small to avoid loosing heat. · Further is a wider double door with an opening on one of them : this is the stable. In our countries, the entry of animals have always been different from people's one. The aim of the opening was to ventilate the stable during the winter. · At the end of the house, again a gable that you may not have noticed before as it is at the granary level. Therefore loads of hay could be uploaded directly from the charriot. The hayloft was perfectly equipped with trapdoors to provide hay directly to the animals. · Another feature of old houses : almost all of them had had a small bunker, like a pit dug in the ground closed with a little trapdoor. There were safely kept potatoes. With such an arrangement this house could face the winter. Minimum windage, minimal openings and full of hay granary were making a very good insulation . The unique room was the only heated part, with a stone fireplace well situated to heat both sides. There were only 2 things outdoor : water and oven. In front of the house you can see a cement basin where the water used to arrive from a little spring higher. This basin has been modified : the part where the water arrives was originally on one end of it. The basin consists in 2 compartments, one smaller and equipped with iron rods (across), to fill buckets and preserve food or milk, the other longer, was used for several animals to drink at the same time.
