Subjects : In addition to the beautiful natural environment (St. Vèran boasts to be the highest municipality inhabited in Europe) there are many well-preserved and renovated typical dwellings. Very nice little parish church. Upstream of the village there is also an astronomical observatory. For the CHAPELLE S. MARIE MADELEINE: Lying downstream of the village rises to the right, along an uphill road on which there are many commercial activities. You climb up to a bend that is faced by ignoring a small road that runs away on the floor and leading to the dirt road that leads to the chapel of Clausis. The road goes beyond the parish and then becomes less steep. When you find the signs for La Maison du Soleil you go to the right following a steep road that then bends to the left (directions) passing behind a hotel and downstream of the departure station of one of the many lifts in the country. The chapel of Mary Magdalene becomes visible, placed on top of a grassy bump and you reach it with short ascent on dirt road. The little church is a great vantage point. Following the signs for Amouraux, take the dirt road that crosses the small sacred building on the left. In short you ignore a dirt road that descends to the left and continue on the floor passing through beautiful pastures. When you cross the track of a ski slope you descend more decidedly to the left and in short you come in sight of the cottages of Amouraux. In Amouraux there is also a Chalet-restaurant that can be reached by taking a path that reaches the back, near a ski lift. Once you reach a road, follow it to the left and, slightly uphill, you return to St. Vèran. At a crossroads you can choose to go back to the country (left) or get off at the car parks (right).
