Du Cep à la Cime

Chamoson is situated in a rocky paradise, awesome for its stone landscape and the expanded vineyards. Between villages, vineyards, wood and waterways, the walking «from the Vine to the Peak» is an invitation to the discovery of the cultural and natural heritage of Chamoson.
From the train station of Chamoson which is located in St-Pierre-de-Clages, the path joins the Book Town of St-Pierre-de-Clages and its church of the XIth century. This roman edifice was built from natural stone and its octagonal tower in the Cluny style is unique in the Valais. The houses of the vieux Bourg were built mostly in the XVIth and XVIIth century.

The track turns towards the walls of the Haut-de-Cry and cheerfully climbs the hillside, along the Siseranche. An immersion in the heart of the vineyard, the vines on the terrace, which is offer splendid panoramas of the plain.

The pathway then leads to the edge of the wooded area to the Bisse of Poteu to go down along the stream of Losentze towards the town of Chamoson. The frescoes and the stained glass, works of Edmond Bille, merit a visit to Chamoson’s church. Then comes the descent of Trémazière by «the Path of Grapes» and returns to St-Pierre-de-Clages for a well-deserved rests on a shaded terrace.
