Attractions In Beaucroissant

Beaucroissant is probably best known for two major fairs, which take place in April and September each year and attract hundreds of thousands of visitors. The Fair of Beaucroissant in September is, in fact, one of the largest in France. On September 14 each year, huge crowds climb in procession to the Chapel of Parménie, or Priory of the Holy Cross, a monument on a hillside above the village. The area boasts exceptional natural heritage, with some of the most magnificent, unspoilt countryside in Europe, making it a pre-eminent destination for lovers of the wild outdoors.

Places To Visit Outside Beaucroissant

Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes is well known for its mountain landscapes, outdoor leisure activities and rich architectural and cultural heritage. Grenoble, known as "the Capital of the Alps", offers opportunities for climbing, hiking, skiing and snowboarding, and is just a short drive away from Beaucroissant, down the A48. Chambéry, too, lies close to the ski resorts of the Alps, but its historic centre features architectural highlights such as Saint-André square, the former Palace of the Dauphiné Parliament and the Chateau of the Dukes of Savoy, which dates from the 11th century. The Saturday morning market, which features cheese, meat and other local produce, is well worth a visit. Other cities in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes worth visiting include Lyon, with a reputation as a gastronomic capital, Annecy, famous for its Vieille Ville, or Old Town, and Château d'Annecy, and one of the oldest cities in France, Clermont-Ferrand.
