Briançon, all the shops and services of a town of 12,000 inhabitants
We are in the middle of the mountains, and yet, civilisation is not far away, 5 minutes away, in Briançon.
Classified as a Unesco World Heritage site, it is impossible to spend a few days in the region without visiting Briançon, a town with character that is an integral part of the heritage to be discovered.
The other interesting thing about Briançon is that it is a real town of 12,000 inhabitants, so you will be able to find all the shops and services you may need… Generally speaking, all the major national food, equipment and bazaar brands are represented and cohabit with the local shops and regional markets.
Doctors, pharmacies, banks…
