This village of music with its week-long festival of piano and baroque music is well known far beyond Switzerland. The brilliant white church looks down far into the valley of the Rhone, and the village square is framed by magnificent wooden houses, evidence of the village's importance in the past as the main town in the Goms region. On the Tell House are splendid frescoes, the oldest depicting the legend of the Swiss national hero. In 1979 the village was awarded the Henri Louis Wakker Prize for the best preserved village.
