CHATEAU DE VALERE Jun 18, 2010
Like the opposite castle of Sion (CHATEAU DE TOURBILLON), also this one is perched on the top of a hill which is easy reachable with a pleasant walk.

Here you can find a 12tth century CHURCH (free entrance) which hosts an old organ (it seems it is the world’s oldest playable organ).

Inside of the church, there are also some quite interesting frescoes, especially in the apsidal area.

But is the POSTCARD VIEW from the terrace which will capture your attention.

In fact this location is so nice that it was one of the photographic points during our meeting!

From here the Old town lies beneath your feet with its churches, the Rhone, another hill and with a wonderful backdrop: the Alps.
