Cite Vauban, Briançon Reviews

  • Stunning walled city and fortress. Lots of narrow streets to explore, plenty of shops and eating places. Best part is wandering the walls and exploring the views looking into the gorge. Breathtaking, and not only due to the steep path to climb back up from the bridge. Fortress is €6 to enter but even without this there is plenty to explore and enjoy.

  • Lovely Historic Town. Well worth spending a few hours to explore, lots of narrow streets and quaint, if slightly touristy shops. Great views of the surrounding area from the battlements.

  • Very nice place to be, filled with culture, as a tourist you can go there to explore and eat some nice food but there is not a whole lot to do.

  • Oozing charm on an exceptional hilltop, surrounded by higher snowcapped peaks from all sides and hanging over five overgrown gorges, Briancon is a small Alpine town in the Grand Serre Chevalier skiing region. Briancon’s Ville Basse is dominated by Av du General de Gaulle (on its southern edge, one finds the train and bus stations) that cuts across the Durance River and twists abruptly to meet the uphill boulevard of Av de la Republique. Climbing up Av de la Republique or its older twin Chemin Vieux is not for the faint-hearted; both leave you breathless even before you reach the top. Instead, one can take the bus that connects the train station with Place du Champ de Mars and deposits you right outside the Vielle Ville. Briancon’s Vielle Ville is nothing more than Vauban’s 18th-century creation. An architectural genius and a military colossus, Vauban fortified the town with a ring of thick walls and lofty ramparts, impenetrable at that time and age and still intact today. The uppermost edge of Rue de la Republique is crowned with the Porte d’Embrun, a daunting gateway complete with huge prison-like doors and still topped with Vauban’s military insignia. The other gateway, north of the Vielle Ville and accessible from Place du Champ de Mars is Porte de Pignerol, another grand stone portal more daunting than the first. Once protected by the walls, walk at random along the tiny passageways and back streets that slope up (or down, whichever direction you take) the Old Town quarter. The Grand Rue is Briancon’s main walkway, a long narrow steeping street crammed with interesting old houses and small nostalgic shops and split into two by a stone drainway that runs along its full length gushing down a nonstop stream of mountain water. Just west of the Grand Rue on Place du Temple is the office de tourisme housed in what is perhaps the oldest and most charismatic medieval workplace in France. Opposite the tourist office stands the pretty parish Church of Notre Dame et St Nicholas, another of Vauban’s creations. Apart from a painted sundial, its twin-towered exterior is austere and plain but its interior is a showcase of florid Baroque that includes a collection of trompe l’oeils, several wall frescoes and plenty of gilded wood sculptures, particularly around the high altar and in the side chapels. The Dauphine coat of arms dominates the centre. East of Grand Rue, the maze of back streets and alleyways is still unrestored and the buildings are tumbledown specimens. Yet the untouched ambience reminiscent of medieval times is alive and ready to be discovered. It is along these streets that you meet the real Vielle Ville as it was three centuries ago. The Cordeliers Church and Monastery is one typical example.

  • Fabulous place..beautiful architecture and food... Magnifique!!
