Le Bourg - 

74340 Samoëns

A heritage walk highlighting stonework and Samoëns, two subjects inextricably linked. See the stone worked by the "Frahans", the landscape carved out of the rocks, the water that creates grooves and etchings, the marriage of Samoëns and stone.

Stone is an inextricable part of Samoëns. Fro the stone worked by the "Frahans" (stonecutters and stonemasons) whose work can be seen along streets, roads and paths, to the landscape carved out of the sedimentary rock and the water that eats and etches its way into the mountainside, giving its energy to Man, the tour highlights the marriage of Samoëns and stone.
