1 point of interest

  • The reconstruction of the village

    The start of the hike takes you past the church. Its bell-tower (listed) of the twelfth century is one of the rare buildings that escaped the bombing and the fire of the village in July 1944. If the houses all have a similar architecture, it is because they were completely rebuilt from 1948 onwards. It is in temporary buildings (some of which are still visible at the exit of the village towards Vassieux) that the inhabitants lived for six years for some, in particular the very cold winters 1946 and 47.


Departure from the Chapelle-en-Vercors Tourist Office (central square), always follow the MTB n ° 34 Red tags all along the circuit. At the crossroads Les Bruyères 1 go on the right and join Le Lauzet 2. Take then full north direction Tourtre by borrowing a stretch of the Grande Traversée du Vercors, go through Les Scies 3 and La Sablière 4.
