  • After we rested, wandering through the beautiful streets of Sion, which exude a rich history, legend, charm, mystery, and after a refreshment stop at a pastry shop, spear remains we headed to Church-Fortress of worth, another jewel of Zion, located on a hill, just in front of Castle of Tourbillon. . I had never seen a fortified church, until this, discovery dating back about thirty years ago. For this reason, I wanted my friends to admire the basilica, so characteristic and unique heritage of national importance. Built in Romanesque style, has seen renovations and additions, in Gothic style. A Gothic statue of the Madonna with the Christ child was added in 15th century, right above the main altar. Apparently, trusted news but not verified, that was proclaimed a Basilica, after the visit of John Paul II. Wonderful and unique.
