At the end of a tiny little road that climbs up onto a hill, you'll reach the charming little village of Lagrand.
Built up high, where the pure
air is, and surrounded by verdant meadows, Lagrand overlooks the BuŰch
valley and gives a panoramic view of the many peaks in the area, most
of which are shaped like rocky teeth planted with trees.
From here, two cobbled alleys and a path bordered by firs lead off, inviting
you to admire superb dressed stone houses, some old, some more recent.
It was restored last century, and is the last remaining part of the famous priory of Notre-Dame de Lagrand founded around 1000.
It is still in very good condition, thanks to solid walls
(two metres thick) built from grey stone. It is one of the oldest historical
monuments in the Hautes-Alpes department.
