Leuk

Camping + Restaurant Bella-Tola

The Romans called it Leuca Fortis – “strong Leuk” – and until the 19th century this was one of the ecclesiastical and cultural centres of the Valais. Defiant towers, castles and fine patrician houses bear witness to the former strength, self-confidence and determination of the community. The emblematic Bishop’s Castle (built 1254), town hall, late-gothic St. Stephen’s Church (with its romanesque tower and roman fi replace) and baroque Ringacker Chapel can be seen for miles around.

Leuk is also looking to its future. The Bishop’s Castle is being restored by a team under the world-famous architect Mario Botta, for conversion into a centre for creative encounter.
