Sanctuaire de Notre Dame de la Salette
Sanctuaire de Notre Dame de la Salette is a high mountain sanctuary at an elevation of 1.787m (5,862ft) above the sea level, located in the Isère department in southeastern France.
The road to the summit is asphalted. It’s called D212C. The road iw big and wide, not too steep, but plenty of nice curves, without much traffic. In 1950, an airplane with 51 people, 49 Canadian, crashed into nearby peak Grande Tête de l’Obiou. The victims are buried at a very well tended cemetery/memorial a few kilometres along the road.
At the summit, near the sanctuary there’s a hotel, a restaurant, some boutiques and a book store.
