An historical route!
The route passes through remarkable natural spaces such as the Forest of Malmort which remained wild. You pass in front of the Mère-Eglise, 11th century chapel of Romanesque architecture, located in the town of Saint Disdier and classified Historical Monument since 1927. It is one of the oldest chapels of the Hautes-Alpes! The ruins of the Castle of Malmort are hung on a rocky peak above the farm of the same name. It is a construction of the 11th century, of which it remains only a wall.
