Chartreuse - South

Chartreuse - SudThe south-facing sundial. The dial shows hourlines from 7 to 6 pm. It has also shortened half-hour markers. The hourlines emanate from a moon circle.

The decoration seems a bit baroque.

The dial face has a motto “Nos Jours Secoulent Com…” The rest is no longer readable.

The dial has been restored in 1988 by Atelier Tournesol.

Location: Colonie de Vacances, Chartreuse, St. Julien en Beauchêne, Hautes-Alpes, France

Chartreuse - Ouest

Chartreuse - OuestThis is an west-facing sundial. It shows hour and half-hour lines from 2:30 to 6:30 pm, although from the gnomon you can see that it indicates already much earlier.

Unfortunately the dial face is broken by a new building addition.

MF des Etroits

MF des EtroitsThis sundial can be found on a building next to the Maison Forestiere.

It is a simple dial showing hourlines from 7 to 4. The hourlines are difficult to see and only the hour markers can be seen. The gnomon seems a bit bent.

Unfortunately there is a ghost shadow on the dial face due to an electricity post.

Location: Maison Forestière des Etroits, St. Julien en Beauchêne, Hautes-Alpes, PACA, France

La Germanette

Serres - La Germanette close-upThis sundial can be found on the bar/restaurant at La Germanette, the public open swimming pool in Serres. The dial had hourlines from 6 to 6. Is this for real, it seems very symmetric. And at the top a boat, which relates to the pool.

Entrevaux pont levis

Entrevaux pont levis close-up This dial is in Entrevaux on northern side of the ‘pont levis’ (bridge). The dial seems to have taken an artistic twist with just 7 hour markers and no further information. I have a feeling that the lines are incorrect as they are all equally spaced.

Entrevaux remnant

Entrevaux remnant close-upA sundial that is partially gone, only the gnomon is left. I guess this was an more elaborate dial, as the gnomon has a declination hole.

Castellane Caisse d’Epargne

Castellane - Caisse d'Epargne close-upThis sundial can be found on the wall of the Caisse d’Epargne building, which is located on the main plaza of Castellane.

The dial is fairly simple with just some hourlines from 8 to 17 o’clock. Interesting the early hours have a blue dent in it, why is that? There is a motto in Latin ‘Vulnerant Omnes Ultima Necat’.

The dial seems to be recent, 1991, but needs already some repairs: the image of the sun is peeling off.

Location: Main Square, Castellane, Alpes de Haute Provence, PACA, France
