Close to the Côte de Gargantua regional nature reserve there is an ancient building that hosts Maison Gargantua.
Maison Gargantua is an ethnographic museum, an exhibition hall, an educational space, a sculpture laboratory and the departure point of some routes to discover the surrounding territory.
There are two itineraries starting from the Maison. The first one, inside, gives the chance of discovering the naturalistic aspects of both the reserve and the surroundings and gives information about past life. The second one, outside, allows the visitor to discover the routes of the Côte and of its surroundings thanks to two routes of different lengths.
A visit to the Maison makes us discover the ancient folk wisdom thanks to objects, pictures and decorations that show ancient professions and local customs and traditions, that might have been sometimes forgot, but that still are a significant part of the autochthonous culture.

Note - this information is not directly connected to the Cammino Balteo path but it is part of the Aosta Valley tourist offer.
