    "The city is known for the so-called" Villas mexicaines ". Many emigrants from Barcelonnette and the surrounding area sought economic success in Mexico in the 19th century. Towards the end of the century they even made up the largest subgroup of the Mexican-French. Their sense of social solidarity was well known; This is one of the reasons why many became wealthy. After their return to Barcelonnette, they built magnificent villas there and in other communities in the Ubaye Valley. ...
    Barcelonnette is close to many high Alpine passes and is therefore attractive for bicycle and motorcycle tourists. To the south, the D902 leads over the Col de la Cayolle to Saint-Martin-d’Entraunes and the D908 over the Col d’Allos to Colmars. These two places are connected by the Col des Champs. To the east you reach the Col de la Bonette (2802 m) and the Col de Larche (Italian: Colle della Maddalena). In the north lies the Col de Vars. "(Source: Wikipedia)

    Super nice place with two good bike shops. Had a fall and the bike had to be screwed back quite a lot. It worked great and at an extremely fair price. That is why I have such positive memories of the place.
