Grocery shopping in Grenoble

Visiting the city of Grenoble, the capital city of the “département de l’Isère”, I took the opportunity to buy some locally produced groceries at the recommendable marché de l’Estacade and visit “La Bastille”, a series of fortified structures on the hill across the river Isère. For those of you who don’t like walking steep hills or many stairs, there is the excellent and rapid téléphérique system, that was build in 1934 but has since been updated so feel safe and enjoy the view! It takes you straight to the fortress where you can enjoy a glass of Chartreuse whilst enjoying the panoramic view over Grenoble and the Alps.
