The Bern Münster Cathedral of St. Vincent is the most impressive late-Gothic building in the city and the largest and most important late medieval church in Switzerland. The three-aisled basilica without a transept towers above the roofs of the old town.
The cathedral is a fitting symbol of the episcopal city of Chur. Somewhat plain from the outside, it impresses with its magnificent interior.
The 11th-century abbey church of Payerne is one of the most important Romanesque churches in Switzerland, with its harmonious spaces, delicate stonework and fine murals. Together with the chapterhouse, it evokes the former splendour of the Cluniac priory. Close by is the intriguing town museum.
The free Walsers settled in the Calfeisen Valley as early as the 14th Century. The church of St. Martin was first mentioned in the annals of 1432.
