Ruins of several chalets below Pététruy which show just how big the settlement was so far down the valley.

In the past, alpine pastures were much valued by the village communities. The villages of La Giettaz and Cordon were in dispute over land for a long period, with the legal case over boundaries marking the pastureland of both villages lasted more than 300 years, from the 15th through to the 18th century.
