To mark the European Heritage Days, Abondance Abbey is offering a whole host of free events all weekend long! The programme includes guided tours, treasure hunts, an Escape Game, exhibitions and a musical walk!
From the "snailles" on the cow necks to the musical sculpture "Frontiere", without forgetting the chimes and bells of the chapels and the church of Saint-Laurent, bells are a must.
From the sawmill of Villapeyron to the chapel of Trés-les-Pierres, take the time to stroll with your family on the path along the banks of the Dranse. Awaken your senses for an unusual discovery of the hamlet of Essert.
The former customs of Châtel, transformed into an interpretation centre, transports you into the picturesque history of smuggling in the mountains on the slopes of the Portes du Soleil at the Franco-Swiss border.
This year, the Savoie Cheese Road celebrates its 20th anniversary! As a partner site, the Maison du Fromage Abondance is offering a wide range of events based around the 8 PDO-IGP cheeses of Savoie during the European Heritage Days.
