Cross

Our Rating

Good

Big wooden cross located on a slope at the upper edge of the tiny hamlet of La Poya. It looks out over the valley in the direction of Vallorcine. The trail leading upto the Cascade de Berard and the Buvette de Berard run past this cross. Longer trails that traverse all the way to Servoz or climb to the summit of Mont Buet also pass by the cross. There are wooden sculptures by Jerome Lyre right next to it. 


We don't have any details on the history of the cross or who installed it and when. If anyone knows more, then please let us know.
