Vercors Memorial

Interesting
Situated in the Lente forest, at an altitude of 1305m, this memorial tucked away in the vegetation has been erected to the memory of the Vercors Resistance. With its modern, austere architecture, it relates the principal events of this dark period. 1km away is the Vercors necropolis with the graves of 193 members of the Resistance who died for their country.
