Region - St-Maurice Castle

Built at the end of the 15th century, entirely destroyed by a fire at the end of the 17th, the St-Maurice castle is opportunely placed, like a lock, at the entrance of the Rhône valley. It has served as a seat to the covernment, as a guard post and as a customs building, as well as (between the 18th and 19th century, an orphanage, an old people's home, a military school and as a prison. The castle is, today, a place to welcome the Valaisian Conseil D'Etat, as well as a place of exhibition dedicated to drawn artworks. Le Château est aujourd'hui un lieu pour les réceptions du Conseil d'Etat valaisan ainsi qu'un espace d'exposition dédié au dessin.
