  • Main building of the castle of Valere-Church of our Lady, which had previously performed the role of cantonal Cathedral. It is expected that under the Church was previously a Roman temple. Definitely worth exploring the exhibits of the temple, many of which 700-80 years. But the main treasure of the Church is a unique body of the year 1390, one of the oldest players of organs in the world. His sound can be heard during the Festival of medieval and organ music.

  • Interesting Cathedral-fortress, located on a nearby mountain with its castle of Tourbillon, but much less visited by tourists, although he, too, is interesting, and a good view from here. A massive Cathedral with thick walls, inside a modest, but worth a look are the altar and a great body. And just sit in silence.

  • The climb is worth in any case. It is alone because of the views of the city and the surrounding area. But the Museum and of course the Church are worth a visit.
