Saint Hilaire funicular
The funicular provides tourist traffic for visiting the plateau, transporting goods, including building materials for buildings of various sanatoriums.
The development of the automobile strongly competed with the funicular from the 1930s. Traffic decreased and operations were abandoned in 1972. Since 1977, a municipal authority has provided the service.
With an 83% gradient, the funicular has the highest declination in France. It is also one of the oldest in the French Alps - Length 1480 m.
