Tucked away at the foot of a huge cliff, Saint Maurice is in fact very modest, but its rich historic legacy continues to make it famous. Inhabited since Antiquity, in the late 3C AD, it became a major centre of Christianity. Its abbey, the oldest monastery in the West, is today a renowned middle and high school, attended by a thousand pupils, who come from all over French-speaking Switzerland.
