Long Description:
Aux siècles anciens, les forêts, les clairières et les chemins de Corrençon constituèrent une importante zone de contact entre les populations du Vercors central et des Quatre-Montagnes : échanges commerciaux pacifiques et luttes âpres entre Saint-Martin et Corrençon pour l’exploitation des bois, et aussi batailles historiques entre les comtes de Sassenage, Seigneurs des Montagnes de Lans, et les Évêques de Die, Seigneurs du Vercors, pour repousser les limites de leurs domaines respectifs.

Le « Champ de la Bataille », clairière au Sud de Corrençon, rappelle par sa dénomination l’affrontement célèbre au cours duquel fut battu l’évêque de Die au XVe siècle (1410). (visit link)
