"Heritage walking trails" : Whilst exploring the local trails, we invite you ton discover the Grand-bornand's rich heritage thanks to your smart phone.
Far from the parish church of Notre-Dame de l' Assomption, the outlying hamlets would have had little religious life had it not been for their chapels. And taking care of their chapels and keeping them beautiful is dear to the heart of the people of each hamlet.
Witnesses to our past, the wayside shrines, often created by individuals, may seem out of date, but express in their own way our local history.
Many objects to be seen in the chapels or the Church, as well as a very old Greek cross in stone at Lormay dating from 1500, are classified historical monuments.
You will find a guide to help you visit these buildings on walks around the resort; it is published by the Bornandin Heritage Association and is for sale at the Tourist Office and the Heritage Centre.
