Introduction to Vissoie

Because of its geographical location, the village of Vissoie has always played an important role in the Val d’Anniviers.

Built above the Navisence, this fortified village controlled the main access road to the valley. In addition, its location at the center of the valley, and also at the junction of the roads leading to other villages today, naturally destined it to take on a significant role in the context of Anniviers.

The village is characterized by its oldest neighbourhoods located around the Tower and above the road.

Vissoie today has about 530 inhabitants.
