THE MONK'S STEP (LE PAS DU MOINE)
"May it be written here for eternity". These were the words of the monk who delivered the region from the snakes that infested it. You can still see the trace of his foot in the stone.
Since that day, the grateful herdsmen have brought delicious cheeses to the convent of La Valsainte every year.
The footprint had become less visible over time. The sculptor Ernest Ruffieux renovated the mark, recreating the miracle for hikers at the Brecca.
