French flair: Market place of Martigny

Roman town with French flair

This ancient town lies between vineyards and woods in the Rhone Knee. The Gallo-Roman temple of Mercury, the foundations of which were only discovered in 1976, bears witness to the fact that the Romans already recognised the strategic importance of the town at the intersection of important roads and passes. Today the Musée Gallo Romain displays the most important archaeological finds of the area. Also worth seeing is the Bernardiner Museum, dedicated to the legendary rescue dogs of the Great St. Bernard.
