Interesting
The different edifices adjacent to the fortified church house a permanent exhibition devoted to the history of the canton. Sacred and popular religious art (sculptures, gold work, pictures) alternate with objects from daily life (furniture) and military life (weaponry, armour). A section is devoted to Valais today, its recent changes and its future. The rooms are small and intimate and enable the visitor to admire the objects close up.
