Up on Saint Eynard fort, you are overlooking Grenoble, tightly clang on to the bicentennial stones of the military fort. Defying gravity and vertigo, you are in position to challenge Belledonne summits, face to face. You may feel like a reckless warden of this proud sentinel -watching the city nested down in the valley, with winding Isère river.
Corenc, Montbonnot and Meylan will look so small, curled up at Chartreuse feet. Where you stand, forget about Vercors, too far away from eyesight. Enjoy fresh air at any season, then make a pause at the fort’s restaurant. Before you leave, take some time to discover the history and legacy of this military site. Now you can share this beautiful viewpoint with a whole community of men – whether architects, soldiers, hikers– who came before you.
