From the top of the Route des Crêtes, you will see Chalon and the Saône valley and perhaps you will have the chance to see Mont-Blanc… Also stop at the cemetery for a few moments to admire the Classified Cross from the 16th century.

At the church, turn left on rue de l'Église, to the cemetery (1). In the cemetery, a beautiful 16th century cross. In the bend before the cemetery, take the unpaved path that runs along the cemetery, on the right. Then stay left and take the path that descends sharply. Downstairs continue on the same path....
