The village and its many hamlets was founded in 1290, but was first documented in 1305. Together with Täsch it belonged to the municipality of Naters until 1552, at which point it became part of the municipality of Visp. The name Randa probably comes from the word "Rand" meaning border. The extended Baroque church, built in 1717, is a real gem.
St. Moritz is more than just a holiday resort. It was also the birthplace of Alpine winter holidays (in 1864) and has twice hosted the Winter Olympics.
