Valpelline

Overview

Valpelline is situated in a green basin between vast meadows and orchards. Its territory, along the course of the Buthier stream, also welcomes rugged landscapes, high peaks and imposing glaciers, where one can experience the mountains in their authenticity. Important in the economic history of the village have been agriculture and handicrafts, as well as the mining industry, in fact from 1700 to 1912 its copper foundry was well known. Today, Valpelline is best known for the production of Fontina PDO and its maturing warehouses carved into the rock, one of which is located inside the old copper mine. Noteworthy are the parish church of San Pantaleone, built in 1722, and the La Tour house-fort dating back to the 10th century. Every year at the end of July, the village comes alive during the traditional Seupa à la Vapelenentse festival.
