Equipped panoramic observation points

As part of the Giroparchi project, observation points have been organised with panels for explaining the landscape (peaks, hills, environment types, etc.) together with fixed binoculars available to the public. The observation points are located in Pra Oursie and Lac Blanc at Champdepraz and at Lac Muffé, Cimetta Rossa, Dondena and Miserin at Champorcher.

The Garden of the SKY and TIME – Lac Muffé, Champorcher

Provided are objects for orientation, sundials and a device to know the position of the Sun among the stars according to the date. It is preferable to observe the objects following the numbering.
