A good example of this architecture is Château de l'Auche, built at the end of the 19th century by the Challe family on their return from South America, which today houses the village school. Other curioisites: Grand Hôtel (1910) and Maison Eiffel, both entirely built from iron and designed by an engineer called Duclos, who worked for Gustave Eiffel's firm.
Aiguilles is the geographical and commercial heart of the Queyras region. In winter it is a family-oriented village ski resort, perfect for people who are attracted by authenticity.
