The small town of Martigny is located on the Rhone elbow in the Lower Valais, at the junction of the three mountain pass roads across the Simplon, the Great St. Bernard and the Forclaz. The town’s winning feature is its happy blend of historico-cultural heritage, Mediterranean flair and tasty gastronomy. The first week of every returning October, it’s time again for the Valais Autumn Fair, which used to be called “Comptoir de Martigny”.
From Martigny you can reach the French holiday resort of Chamonix in a one-and-a-half hour trip via the audaciously built narrow-gauge tracks of the “Mont Blanc Express”. The “Sankt Bernhard Express” takes you from Martigny to Orsières, from where you will continue by bus through an awe-inspiring mountain landscape to the Great St. Bernard mountain hostel. Martigny is also a great transport hub to easily reach famous winter sports areas like “4 Vallées”, “Portes-du-Soleil” and Ovronnaz.
Martigny’s history stretches back two thousand years: Celtic tribes, the Romans and Napoleon’s army have all left behind traces. Martigny offers its visitors a superb, restored amphitheatre, Roman thermal baths, temples and living quarters. Martigny later became Switzerland’s first diocese. Nowadays, the historic districts of La Bâtiaz and Vieux-Bourg, featuring many religious and non-religious buildings, are worth a visit.
Fondation Pierre Gianadda obviously is Martigny’s main attraction from a cultural point of view. In addition to the Gallo-Roman Museum it houses a car museum and every year two top-class exhibitions dedicated to world-famous artists.
The Saint Bernard Dog Museum is a must-do. The museum is located in the old armoury, adjacent to the Roman amphitheatre. The museum is home to an array of artifacts and documents that tell the story of the Great St. Bernard Hospice and Pass. The legendary Saint Bernard dogs are obviously one of the museum’s main attractions !
