National Monuments in the Haute-Savoie

These photos were taken while we traveled around the Haute-Savoie to see some of the many (165!) listed French national historical monuments there. We contributed some of our pictures to the 2011 Wiki Loves Monuments project in Europe to get representative free-license images of as many monuments as possible uploaded to Wiki Commons and Wikipedia. For more info about the 2011 project, see http://www.wikilovesmonuments.eu/ . And hey, it was interesting and fun to search for and learn about these several monuments...
