    The first line of the crest of the Alps, the southerly part of the Massif des Bornes appears as a vast mountainous square where history and nature come together. Its seemingly unfathomable cliffs, its long and narrow or conical summits, its combes suspended over the surrounding valleys, its passes and cuts giving access, create typical and varied landscapes where plant and mineral come together. In its heart is the Plateau des Glières. Here some 470 people wrote of brotherhood, their sense of freedom going, as the poet Pierre Emmanuel put it so well, as far as "to die to remain human".
