    The original town was built by Vauban in the reign of Louis XIV (dob 4 May 1633 - 30 March 1707), a Marshal of France and the foremost military engineer of his age, famed for his skill in both designing fortifications and breaking through them. The Fort nestled at the foot of the mountain, is the Fort de Savoie. This is still in good repair and is the host of many events. Below this, the entrance to the town is the Porte de Savoie. At the far end of town are the walled remains of the Fort de France and the entrance (or exit) at this end of town is called the Porte de France. The border with the old kingdom of Savoie was literally just up the road from the commune and in the days when Vauban was building fortifications all over France, Savoie was the enemy. Colmars-les-Alpes is one of the 'Villages et Cities de Caractere'. This label is awarded to those who have a remarkable architectural heritage and a population of less than 2000. To gain this award Colmars-les-Alpes must make constant efforts regarding: - Restaurants with local specialities, accommodation, tourist information bureaus; - Event and leisure activities: crafts, cultural shows, exhibition areas, guided tours, etc. - Environment: enhancement of public areas, reduction of the number of advertising hoardings, restoration of facades among other things.
