Hauteville-Lompnes

(4/5 based on 10 reviews for 1 attraction)
Hauteville-Lompnes is a commune in the Ain department in eastern France.HistoryThe commune was formed in 1942 by the union of Hauteville and Lompnes. In 1964 it absorbed the neighbouring communes of Lacoux and Longecombe.GeographyThe river Albarine flows southwestward through the commune's northern part.FeaturesHauteville-Lompnes is famous for its deposits of marble which has been used in the construction of many monumental buildings, among them the Empire State Building in New York and the Kōkyo Imperial Palace in Tokyo.A notable feature is the castle d'Angeville, a family possession of the family of that name since 1657. A scion of that family was Henriette d'Angeville, the second woman to climb Mont Blanc, for whom a street in Hauteville is named; her brother, the count d'Angeville, lived in the castle in the mid-nineteenth century.The town was also renowned at the start of the 20th century for its state-of-the art hospitals, notable in the fight against tuberculosis.Today the town is more oriented towards tourism, with cross country and downhill skiing in the winter and range of summertime activities, including walking, hiking and fishing.
