Located 700 meters (2,100 feet) above sea level, Bellecombe castle benefits from an outstanding position to monitor the Gresivaudan Valley (access to Grenoble Southward), the Combe de Savoie Valley (access to Chambery Eastward) and Northern Isère valley (access to the alpine pass of Mont Cenis towards Italy). 

This is why  Dauphinois and Savoyards fought over 300 years to control this castle.
