    Sion is in a valley of vineyards and fruit orchards. It is recognizable from a distance by the two castles on hills overlooking the old town.

    The old town is fun to walk around. The 17th Century town hall has an astronomical clock in the tower. Beyond the city streets you can see the vineyards that surround the city.Read more

    Lac Souterrain

    July 27, 2017 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Once off the train it was down twisty roads to the valley below. We stopped at Lac Souterrain at Saint-Léonard. The subterranean lake is located along the Rhone valley, between Sion and Sierre in the heart of the Swiss Alps.

    With a length of around 300 meters this is the largest natural underground lake in Europe which can be explored by boat.

    Then it was onto Sion. It’s known for 2 hilltop fortifications: the 13th-century Tourbillon Castle ruins and the Valère Castle complex, with a basilica housing an organ over 500 years old. The 15th-century Cathedral of Notre-Dame-du-Glarier and the conical Witches’ Tower are in the old town.

    When we arrived we walked/hiked up to a 792m hilltop overlooking the airport and city. On it was the ruins of an old fort called Notre-Dame de Montorge.
