"Parc Paul Mistral, Monument des diables bleus" Top 5 Page for this destination Grenoble Favorite Tip by JLBG

Grenoble General: 50 reviews and 50 photos

 
 

Favorite thing: The "Diables bleus" (Blue Devils) are the Alpine commandos, the "Chasseurs Alpins", specially trained to move and operate in the mountains, at high elevation. They became famous during WW1 and even much more during WW2 when they played a main part in the Liberation of the Alps. This monument commemorates their bravery.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
