La Mure - Laffrey

Distance 15.8km
Time 4h30
+ 395m
- 354m

The La Mure market hall 

This hall, located in the center of La Mure, comprises a base which supports a peristyle made from 30 limestone pillars. The entire hall is covered by woodwork that supports a slate roof. The hall is a testament to the market tradition that has existed in the burg since the 13th century. The first hall was built in 1309. Since then it has been rebuilt several times and the current hall was built in 1843. It's general shape reminds us of an antique church, a design often used in this time period.

Lakes, humid regions and hedged farmland in the Matheysins 

The norther part of the Matheysins is a protected natural region that is rich in various flora and fauna thanks to it's three unique glacier lakes, a mosaic of humid regions (reed beds, peat bogs, and floodplains) and a network of hedged farms. As a migratory pit stop for birds and an area perfect for bathing and hiking, the Matheysins lakes continue to offer a beautiful panorama and are a unique spot in the Isère.

The Meeting Meadow 

In March of 1815, Napolean returned from the Elbe Island and headed towards Paris. On March 6th he stayed in Corps, then continued on to La Mure and towrads Vizille.

In Laffrey he faced King Louis XVIII's army that had marched from the capital to stop him. Alone, he marched up to the troops and exclaimed : "Soldiers, if any of you wish to kill your Emperor, here I stand!" With shouts of "long live the Emperor", the soldiers trampled their fleurs-de-lys. This was the first rallying that marked the return of Napoleon. The site of this event is marked by an equestrian statue of the Emperor.

What to see : The Protestant church in La Mure, the gothic chapel in Peticeht, the Roman church in Saint Théoffrey, the Matheysin museum.

Posté par Philippe le 18/09/2020 :

1 hôtel près du lac disponible. Mais je suis resté dans un AirBnB. L'approvisionnement en nourriture pour la soirée est assez limité. J'ai mangé au "Piano au Lac", je peux le recommander. 

Posté par Christiane sur le chemin des Huguenots le 04/06/2019 :

 Jolie étape,  camping

Posté par Dècle Françoise le 26/05/2018 :

 Sur cette étape aucune balise du chemin des huguenots et comme il y a beaucoup de sentiers,une carte papier ou GPS avec le parcours à suivre est indispensable. 

Posté par Vidalis le 26/07/2015 :

 Balisage satisfaisant jusqu'à Tors.

Ensuite, plus rien et un descriptif très insuffisant. Je n'ai pas réussi à suivre le GR, ai suivi le parcours jaune. Les chemins étaient bien agréables.
