Bisses

Activities

Bisses Museum and Museum path

Give a new dimension to your walks along the bisses by getting to know them. At the Valais Bisses museum, you will learn about the history, construction and socio-cultural meaning of these old aqueducts; or head for the museum garden to try your hand at operating a bisse made of “bazots and tretschbord” – a wooden channel and a special type of wall. Combine your visit to the museum with a stroll on a magnificent marked footpath alongside three bisses where you’ll discover the wooden channels of Torrent-Croix and the Bitailla distributors.
