Fairy Cave

Perched above St-Maurice, the Fairy’s Cave (Grotte aux Fées) dominates the Rhone Valley. It was the first tourist cave opened to the public in Switzerland and offers since more than a century a natural and wonderful show in which its principal actors, rocks and water, depend upon the imagination of mankind to make this journey into the bowels of the earth unforgettable. After a half kilometre walking through a well-lit gallery, the underground visit reaches its peak when its visitors see a little lake fed by an impressive waterfall. Some people say that sometimes tiny fairies escort visitors out of the cave.
