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.
To get your bearings and to measure time by the slow movement of the sun and shadows, 12 installations have been put in place. 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.
Some patience, goodwill and drawing on school memories of terrestrial and astronomical geography are required.
