Sion
The Essential
Recommended
Sion seems to rise out of the past, perched on two rocky outcrops each of which is the site of an impressive castle. The town is steeped in history and one of the oldest of Switzerland. The political and administrative capital of Valais, it has also become the canton's business hub. The urban development taking place on the outskirts of the town is sadly little more than sprawling, but thankfully the historic city quickly banishes such memories.
