Nº 288 La Vy aux Moines

La Vy aux Moines goes back to the Middle Ages when numerous religious communities populated the valleys of the Jura massif. During the period of the reformation, the monks fled from Môtiers. In the course of the centuries, La Vy became a trade route for salt merchants, smugglers, and refugees.
