Back in the XIX century tourism. This bridge built again in the XIX century was a mandatory passage for armies and tourist for hundreds of years. Its view one the mont Blanc is one of the most famous. Victor Hugo, Lamartine ... went there and enjoyed this view. The village near stayed in the past, granted with 3 hotels before, they run out of business when the new highway was built and change the way path. Buildings are still there in their old architecture.
An old church stands near the bridge since the XVII century, ask to open it to a local if it is close.
Then continue on this way and you will find the Saint Joseph high school, catholic school rulled by sisters congregation for a century. Ask to visit their chapel rebuilt by citizen during WWII and still in use by student.
If you are fine, continue one kilometer to Illettes Lakes, three lakes draw to built the highway, very nice and quite place. Then on the same road, Arpenaz cascade, one of the nicest waterfall in the valley near and abandonned plant bombed during WWII.
If you are still in form, you can try some hiking for Veran, Mole etc...
If you like to discover nice gem without lot of tourists, this village is for you. (no hotel there, sleep in Sallanches, 5min)
