Remains of Val d'Isère's history

Pyramides is a blue run on the Massif du Fornet. It takes its name from the five pyramids that were built in the Vallon de l'iseran in the 19th century.

The pyramids served as a guide to travellers making their way to Turin via the Col de l'Iseran in bad weather. once risong to 6 meters, one of them is still intact but the others have not withstodd the test of time.

Our top tip:
The last pyramid to remain intect has a little alcove where you can shelter from the wind, it is a lovely place to take a break.
