Presentation

Discover the history of a small village with great charm

Guided tour by Gaby Faust Fischer and Yvonne Jollien

An important crossroads of several routes over the centuries, later practically deserted, this village’s residents have ensured its rebirth. Explore some out-of-the-way places, witnesses to the valley’s way of life. The chapel and a tiny museum in a house; the mill and the bisse (irrigation channel); the hayloft, the raccard (wheat store) and the communal oven – all important testimony to a bygone era.

Did you know that the site of Tiébagette, just outside Fang, is a location for serious archaeological research?  

Enjoy exploring the past and present history of Fang in the company of passionate local residents who really enjoys sharing their knowledge of village and valley with visitors.
