The idyllic little village of Euseigne lies at the junction between Val d'Hérens and Val d'Hérémence. Perhaps nobody would have taken particular notice, if it hadn't been for the odd rock formations that have arisen at the edge of the village. They are proudly called the Pyramids of Euseigne. The rocks are natural geological degradations formed by normal rainfall.
