Euseigne – the most discreet

A village with the Dent Blanche in the background, which gave its name to the famous pyramids

Nestled between the upper Val d’Hérens and the Val d’Hérémence, Euseigne is located between the rivers of the Borgne and Dixence. In 1800, a violent fire destroyed the village and its chapel. In 1917, a new fire almost completely ruined the village, destroying more than a hundred houses in its path. According to the legend, there should not be a third time! It is said that if Euseigne burns a third time, the rocks underneath would open, and the village would collapse.

Today, Euseigne is known for its pyramids, strange conical forms topped with a stone hat. A natural curiosity, a geological phenomenon among the most unusual places of the Val d’Hérens and the most instagrammable spot in Switzerland. An air of Cappadocia in the Valais Alps. Unmissable !

One more info = From spring to autumn, go to the Mayens d’Euseigne for a nice look at the village of Hérémence, in front of a background of glaciers and snow-capped mountains.

Download the Hérémence Tourism mobile app and follow the discovery trail “The most instagrammable places”.

x Warning The access road to the Grande Dixence dam was closed on 2 November by the State of Valais for the winter season. We look forward to seeing you next year in June !
