Embrun : Michelin's recommendations
Long since known as the Nice of the Alps on account of its sunny weather, all that was lacking was the splash of water, and this came with the construction of the vast artificial Lake Serre-Ponçon. Visit the 12C Brune Tower and the cathedral (Notre-Dame du Réal), its portal a typical example of Lombard art. For a rewarding walk, head up to the Belvédères de l'Embrunais, overlooking the lake.
