Historic site and monument

The market town of Les Marches

Porte de Savoie

About us

Founded in 1301, the new city of the Marches is a jewel of Gothic civil and military architecture. It is also the only vestige of a Savoyard new town with a rectangular plan that France has.

The visit presents the history of this community and reveals the architecture: towers, ramparts, defensive elements and places of life (old houses, bread oven, etc.).
