The church in Tenna

When the Walser people arrived in the valley, it is thought that they built their first church here in about 1350. It is dedicated to St. Valentine, now known as the patron saint of lovers - no wonder that so many people choose to get married here, with the fantastic views of the Safien valley. Some wall-paintings that have been preserved because they were painted over during the Reformation were only rediscovered in the nave in 1957.

Roof shingles workshop

It was when the Safien barn conversion project began, that the Safien roof shingles workshop was set up. Local people from Safien make shingles and in this way find an additional source of income while at the same time preserving an ancient craft. Whenever possible, the Safien barns are roofed with the local product. Find out more by taking a guided tour.
