In the Valais region, the bisses are an important part of the region’s heritage, it’s culture and its civilisation. These works of art which are sometimes dug out of the ground, sometimes carved out of the rock and even suspended from the rock face symbolise the people of the region’s fight to redirect the water in order to avoid drought and water their fields and crops.
Today, the bisses contribute to a wonderful network of easily accessible walking trails due to little variation in altitude, giving the region a very important tourist attraction.
Veysonnaz is located on the Bisse de Vex, one of the most beautiful bisses of the Valais region. This bisse is checked daily by the guardian.
