GRESSONEY VALLEY

Due to its altitude variations (from 345 metres in Pont St. Martin to the 4,634 metres of the Monte Rosa) and for its special formation, the territory of the Lys Valley brings together spectacular nature which differs greatly from one type to another and includes vines in the lower part, conifer forests, brooks and cascades to the highland meadows surrounded by enchanting lakes culminating in the imposing glaciers and summits of Monte Rosa. Yet not only. The territory also includes precious historical remains that stem from the Roman Empire up to the late Renaissance and splendid examples of rural architecture in wood and stone are the greatest examples of the “Stadel” inherited from the Walser people.  A microcosm that is waiting to be discovered.
