The picturesque path departing from Saint-Maurice first runs along the rock before leading to a plateau that offers impressive views of the Rhône Valley. From here, the path crosses through the forest to the north of the town, with the final section of the route offering up a number of surprises. You will pass through the Fairy’s Cave (Grotte aux Fées), which leads to a magnificent waterfall and underground lake. Inside the cave, there is a door leading to one of the town’s three underground artillery fortresses. A little further, Saint-Maurice castle, constructed between the 15th and 17th centuries, is now home to a museum and exhibitions dedicated to graphic art. The last highlight of this walk is the Abbey of Saint-Maurice, founded more than 1,500 years ago and home to priceless treasures.
