Saint-Maurice The Essential
This little town, dominated to the west by the Dents du Midi peaks and to the east by the Mordes summit, is in a picturesque spot just where a Rhone gorge opens up. It was in the surrounding region in the 3C that a legion, recruited in Africa and commanded by Maurice, who had refused to worship Rome's gods, was massacred. It was an event that had repercussions throughout Christendom.
