Quartier St Laurent, Grenoble
This photos shows on the right bank of the Isére, the "quartier Saint Laurent". On the left bank, a square tower is on the back of the "Musée de Grenoble". A little further, the clock-tower of Saint André. In the background the Vercors Massif with the Moucherotte mountain.
This photo shows the "Quartier Saint Laurent", the oldest part of Grenoble where you will find a whole set of pizzerias (see my restaurants tips). On the very top, the Fort de la Bastille. On an intermediate shelf, two buildings were built in the late 50s. One is the Institute of Geography and the other the Institute of Geology. That was a great idea to build these two institutes in a place that fitted perfectly with their subject but in car access is difficult and in the XXIth century, they are not convenient any more for this use. New buildings have been built in the valley and the future of these buildings is not settled yet.
