Not so far from Le Sappey en Chartreuse, the Saint Eynard fort is a military bastion from the 18th century. Perched at 1338 meters, it was built to protect Grenoble from the risk of invasion by the Savoyards. It offers visitors a panoramic view of the Grenoble and Grésivaudan valleys, the Alps, and all the way to the Mont Blanc on a clear day. You can get there by a narrow road, or by hiking up from the Col de Vence. The Relais du Saint Eynard offers meals in the summer and you can also visit the historical exhibit on the history of the fort.
