On the edge of the Ecrins National Park, Puy Saint Vincent in Vallouise combines the charm of a traditional village and a modern winter sports resort.

But this "sporty" village also has other more surprising cultural assets: wall paintings dating from the 15th century on the wall of Saint-Vincent chapel, a medieval chapel dedicated to Saint-Romain (12th century) now used as a museum of rural life in olden times, Saint-Roch chapel (17th century) presenting an exhibition on the theme of "the plague and the penitents "...
