#history

In its magnificent natural setting, the guillestrois and Hautes-Alpes is full of natural and cultural riches, taking on an even greater significance in these mountain areas. . . Close to Guillestre, you can discover the footprints left by the prolific military architect Vauban by visiting the stronghold of Mont-Dauphin, which has been classed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Planted on a rock, the Queyras castle arising at the turn of the Queyras’ winding roads, leaving you speechless.

Let the Guillestre’s associations stir your curiosity! Our enthusiastic volunteers will share with you their « hobby »: culrual heritage, environment, music and many other secrets!
For autonomous and interractives visits, you can try out the « Baroulades » application which is available on your smartphone or on tablets on loan at the Tourism Office. Go on an adventure with the small character Guihem and follow in the footsteps of our history.
You can pick up a map of Guillestre’s historical center as well as other documents such « Guillestrois: between reality and imagination » at the Tourism Office of Guillestre.
