5 The Abbey of Saint-Maurice d’Agaune
The visitor trail is based on light and imagery, the symbols of knowledge and faith.<br/>It tells an extraordinary story: that of a miraculously preserved, living religious community that bears sole witness to a spiritual and cultural activity that is not found anywhere else in the western Christian world. The visit starts from the current basilica which dates back to the 17th Century and was restored and enlarged in the mid-20th Century. After the archaeological site, the visit continues with the catacombs and then the abbey treasure.
