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.
