It is a natural site that has contributed to the industrial and commercial development of Bellegarde. The Valserine river has also been a border many times : between France and Savoy (1601-1760), then it was a free zone (1815-1923) and a French Demarcation Line during the World War Two (free zone located on the right bank).
