A medieval village that was once the residence of the Lords of Anniviers, Vissoie has preserved some astonishing buildings that bear witness to its history. Its church and the Castle Chapel reveal the rich religious heritage of Anniviers. And that's not all...

What was the purpose of the tower? What do the drawings on the house of Abbé Erasme Zufferey represent? Where were the Maison des Mines and the Hôtel d'Anniviers?
Enjoy discovering the past and present history of Vissoie, thanks to passionate locals who are delighted to pass on their knowledge of the village and the valley to visitors.
