During a guided stroll with the voices of Natur'Envie and the Savoie Mont Blanc Heritage Guides from the Archeological Museum, you learn about the part played by water in Faverges through various aspects.

History and geology: what is a biel? What is the use of a martinet? From the “Fountain” to the “Ice house” passing by the “taillanderies” and other forges, washing houses and ponds, you learn how water and its mastery have shaped Faverges over time. You discover water as a driving force to fuel artifices, a natural force (floods and construction of the embankment), a drink of course or a cooling device (ice house)…
Fauna and flora: around the main body (Saint-Ruph Nant: river) and the Source du Biel geological site but also inside it. Mimicking a tree, drawing a landscape, identifying insects…
A whole world of discovery and experiments is open to you.
Easy walk. No height difference.
