Encircled by the wooded hills of the Alps, this small town of artisans owes its fame to its renowned Passion Play, which is only performed once every ten years (2010, 2020). The play, involving over 1,000 amateur actors, lasts an entire day. The inhabitants of the village vowed to give a presentation of the Passion of Christ every ten years after a terrible plague epidemic miraculously stopped just short of the village in 1633.
