Things to do: historic sites, theme parks, adventure
Embrun is a commune in the Hautes-Alpes department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region in southeastern France.DescriptionIt is located between Gap and Briançon and at the eastern end of one of the largest artificial lakes in Western Europe: the Lac de Serre-Ponçon.The town of Embrun, Ontario was named after Embrun in 1856.HistoryEmbrum was formerly known as Ebrodunum . There is some variation in the writing of the first part of the name. It is Epebrodunum in Strabo's text, but later translators corrected it. Strabo says that from Tarasco to the borders of the Vocontii and the beginning of the ascent of the Alps, through the Druentia and Caballio, is 63 miles; and from thence to the other boundaries of the Vocontii, to the kingdom of Cottius, to the village of Ebrodunum, 99 miles. Ebrodunum was in the country of the Caturiges, and just on the borders of the Vocontii, as it appears.
