Valais, Switzerland An Undiscovered Swiss Canton by Farrol Khan

This guide gives a new view of the unknown, wacky Canton of Valais, Switzerland. Most people have heard of the famous resorts of Zermatt, Verbier, Saas-Fee and Crans Montana, but few know about the rest. Besides the best Swiss wines and alpine cheeses, it has black and white goats, cow fights, dinosaur footprints, a Roman amphitheatre, thermal baths, mineral deposits, masked wild beast carnival costumes and a strong link with the British who conquered every peak in sight in the 19th century. Cultural activities include exhibitions at Pierre Gianadda foundation, treasures at St Maurice Abbey, music festivals and museums in Sion, the oldest town in Switzerland. This guide is aimed at families and shows that a part of Switzerland is still affordable.
