The path of the granaries and the village of the Woods: A journey to the meeting of a forgotten history

On the left bank of the Arveyron, formerly at the foot of the Glacier des Bois, in the forest, a small path cleared by the NFB a few years ago. Here were old quarries of granite where nearly 300 workers worked for 80 years. It is a moving place, like an open book. From place to place we discover the various phases of the work that these men provided. These granaries have been at the origin of the embellishment of Chamonix for many years. Then we will visit the village of Les Bois. This hamlet with indefinable charm has greatly enriched the know how of these granaries. This will be the opportunity to rediscover the rural habitat built at the foot of the Glacier des Bois later became the Ice Sea. - Rendez-vous: 14h Entrance on the fountain side of the village of Les Bois
