The sundials

The sundials road goes across the Hautes-Alpes with over 400 ancient and contemporary sundials.

In the south of the department, they are mostly contemporary.
The ancestral tradition is perpetuated by the sundial-and fresco painter Rémi Potey who created numerous contemporary sundials in the villages of our region.
From sundial to sundial you will discover the natural and manmade heritage of our valleys...

In Le Poët
, go and walk through the streets of the village for finding the dial, painted in fresco on a building façade, a nod and a wink to Leonardo da Vinci…

In Monêtier-Allemont,
  go and search the Cornucopia :
... it illustrates a splendid contemporary sundial that adorns a building wall in the village.
