These stones were laid according to Roman techniques and the path was first used in the Middle Ages by the monks from the Chartreuse de Mélan to access Praz de Lys pastures 1,000m further up. For a long time, this was the only access to Praz de Lys. Along this itinerary, the landscapes are varied, between the villages, forests and pastures, as well as some magnificent viewpoints from the heights of Taninges and Praz de Lys, over the Mont-Blanc and Chablais mountains. The "Montée des Pavés" is also a running race organized every last sunday of july (12km, 8 km or popular walk).
