Gorges du fier

gorges-du-fier

The GORGES DU FIER are classed among the most attractive curiosities of the french Alps. Inside this gigantic fault, we discover many potholes, that the river digged for thousand years. When leaving the Gorge, the river threads one way through a labyrinth of rocks. It's a wide lapiaz with tormented shapes called "Sea of rocks".

Annecy castle

miniature miniature
annecy-castle

The historical symbol of Annecy, the castle took four centuries to build (from the 12th to the 16th century). The Counts of Geneva chose to reside there from the 13th century. The city acquired the castle in 1953 and restored it with the help of "Historic Monuments", thus allowing a museum to be set up there. Since 1993, the Logis Perrière Tower houses the Regional Alpine Lakes Observatory.
