Historic medieval village
The medieval district of Les Arcs is a fascinating place to spend some time, exploring the narrow little streets, admiring the architecture - and the engineering skills which erected such buildings hundreds of years ago.
Call into the tourist information centre in the main village square and pick up a copy of the little map, which gives the basic story of the medieval village, some interesting facts, things to see, the route to take.
The medieval district goes back as far as the twelfth century, and was developed over the centuries. It fell into ruin but was restored in the nineteen sixties, and the restoration has been done beautifully.
There's a 'House of History' showing various stages in the history of the village, and some documents from the fifteenth century are displayed.
There's a country hotel right at the top- of the hill on which the village is built.
We didn't stay there so I can't post a Tip but I've put a little information about it on a second Travelogue.
