  • Saint-Julien-en-Vercors

    Small village of 250 inhabitants perched at 900 m of altitude, Saint-Julien-en-Vercors is dominated in the East by the Crests of Chalimont. One of the curiosities of the village is to the right of the entrance of the Church, in fact, a stalagmite with a cross has been installed there since 1832 by Jacques Borel. This stalagmite comes from the cave of Barmechinelle in the South of the Village. Since 1867, mining is prohibited.
