Let's discover the Clausonne Abbey, a former hamlet situated at 1140 meters of altitude! You will take part to the valorization project of a place that is classified as a Historical Monument. Today, only the remnants of this 12th century building are found as the abbey was destroyed, burnt, rebuilt and finally used as a farm and school in the 19th century. Clausonne remains, however, a remarkable site, sharing the beauty of the wilderness that surrounds it: situated in the heart of a vast «circus» of mountains, the abbey became the route point for numerous hikers that visit the Haute vallée of Maraize.
