Chambéry is the capital of the department of Savoie. It has been the historical capital of the Savoy region since the 13th century, when Amadeus V of Savoy made it his seat of power.
Chambéry, 55km north of Grenoble, lies just south of the Lac du Bourget in a valley separating the Chartreuse Massif from the Bauges mountains, historically an important strategic position commanding the entrance to the big Alpine valleys leading to the passes into Italy.
