Tignes is a village that has risen from the ruins and ascended to a height.
The former village of Tignes, located at an altitude of 1500, was washed away by the waters of Lake Lac de Chevril in 1952 as a result of a dam break. However, in 1957 the new village of Tignes was built already at an altitude of 2100 meters.
