At the confluence of the River Drac and the Isère, the picturesque city of Grenoble is encircled by mountains. Grenoble was the venue for the Winter Olympic Games in 1968. The city is known today for its outdoor tourism and is an increasingly important industrial and scientific research centre.
Peter Julian Eymard was ordained a priest of the Diocese of Grenoble (now Grenoble-Vienne) in 1834. His last Mass was celebrated in Grenoble on 21 July 1868. Several places in Grenoble have close associations with Eymard:
