Take a look at the panorama: if today the summits are an invitation to hike, in the past they were the "playground" where customs officers and smugglers used to clash!
Bordered by the French-Swiss border, the village of Châtel has been marked by this singular neighbourhood, from the history of smuggling in the mountains to the advent of tourism in the Portes du Soleil.
Meeting point at the Old Customs House.
OpeningsFrom 07/01 to 28/01/2021, every Thursday between 10.30 am and 11.30 am.
